  • Take the pickle in a mixing bowl. I had to mash it nicely since it had a lot of garlic cloves. Mix it with all other ingredients nicely.

  • Drain the brinjals and add to the above marinade and mix well so that the marinade coats the brinjals very well. You can sprinkle water if needed. Keep these inside the refrigerator for around 15 minutes.

  • Serve hot with plain ghee rice or sambar rice or curd rice.


  • You can add more pickle and besan if you need the masala to coat the brinjals nicely.
  • Add salt with caution as the pickle already has salt.
  • Do not make the marinade watery as it might not coat the slices well.
