JFI for July : Eggplant

I am delighted to be hosting the JFI event for the month of July. The ingredient for this JFI is one of my favorite vegetables - the Eggplant. Also called Aubergine, Baingan, Brinjal, Vanakaya, Vazhuthananga ... these beauties are a delight to the palate. In bright jewel colors ... the royal deep purple, the green color of jade, the creamy white, eggplants are common to a host of cuisines. So get creative :) and send me your delightful creations.

The rules for participation are very simple :

  • Prepare a dish with eggplant and post it on your blog on July 1, 2007
  • Send me an email at khanagharka@gmail.com with the permalink to your post alongwith a picture of the dish, preferably in 100 x 100 pixel size, by July 2
  • Mention the event, recipe name and your blog in the email
  • Check back for the roundup, on July 7th

    Non Bloggers
    : You are invited too. Email me the recipe and picture and I will be more than happy to include it in the roundup.

    I have created a logo for this event - please feel free to use it on your blog.

    Hey
    great choice! I have a classic brinjal recipe called ennai kathirikkai in Tamil or guthi vankaya in Telugu (which translates to something insipid like Oily Brinjal curry in english) that I make in three different ways - one tambram way and two telugu ways. Can I showcase all three or would that be an overkill?

    Sangeeta said...

    @ Indira, Madhavi, Trupti :), Looking forward to your participation

    @ Desi Girl, Please do showcase all 3. It will be wonderful :)
