Chinese style Brinjal Fry
This is one of mom's favourite dish and also sister's. Mom used to make this style of brinjal very often in my house. She got this recipe from one of her tamil magazine many years back when we were in school. She tried it out immediately and everyone became a fond for this dish. It tastes good with the long variety of brinjal preferably the green ones. I did not get nay green one's so I tried the same with purple ones which was equally good.
