EGGPLANT MORTAR PESTLE CHUTNEY/VANKAYA BANDA PACHHADI (Brinjal chutney)

VANKAYA /BRINJALCHUTNEY

  • This we used to call as Vankaya Banda Pachhadi or Vankaya Roti Pachhadi ..
  • As instead of grinding the chutney in Electric Blenders our mothers   used to grind the chutney in a grinding stone with hand unlike us using all electricgadgets,in those days.
  • And there is a tremendrous change in the taste of hand made and electric ones.
