Fried Brinjal /Vazhuthanaga/Baingan In Yoghurt

Today I am glad to share another recipe with all my friends.It has been 3 months since I update my blog.Many blogger friends have been asking why I am not updating my blog.I have been very busy with my vacation in Kerala.

I have learned so many new recipes during these days in Kerala. I tried this dish for the first time.There are a couple of versions of Dahi Baingan one of which is this particular  recipe that I noted in my recipe files.A creamy style sabji that makes for a lovely side dish with roti's(chapathi).It goes well with steamed rice too. I am sure you all will love this dish with a new flavor.

I have made this dish for this month's Potluck Party-Cyber Style hosted by jagruti.
