This Brinjal Potato Recipe is a stir fry also called as the vankaya bangaladumpa vepudu in telugu is a very common side dish that goes with rice, rasam or sambar or any pulusu. The brinjal fry that I posted earlier is a very hot one that is prepared with green chilies, green peas and milk is added for an extra taste. Today’s recipe is different, red chili powder and garam masala are used.
