  • When you chop the brinjals, put them into the water-filled vessel so that they will not turn bitter and black.
  • You can even add a pinch of salt into the water but make sure that you will cook those brinjals immediately since the brinjals observe the salt.
  • Do not over pour the water to adjust the consistency. If the curry becomes thin, you may lose its actual taste.
