South Indian Brinjal Dal - Vaingya Ambot

South Indian Brinjal Dal - Vaingya Ambot
  • Vaingya Ambot is a tongue-tingling brinjal recipe made with tamarind and dal. This meal has a fantastic sour and spicy flavour thanks to the tamarind and coconut and red chilli paste.
  • The flavour and aroma are enhanced by a sprinkle of spice powders and a tempering of mustard seeds and asafetida. The onions in the Vaingya Ambot, sautéed with the tempering, give it a rich flavour and a lovely crunch. To keep it healthy, this sour and spicy vegetable dish is created with a very little coconut and oil.
