Simple Home cooked Dinner With Brinjals From My Garden.

There are days that I feel like cooking especially when I have some harvest from my garden. This particular day, I noticed 4 green brinjals hanging under the branches with the leaves covering them from my sight. If I hadn't bent down to take a peek under the branches, I would have missed these brinjals and possibly when they are found later, they would have been too matured to be eaten.
 4 tender green and white brinjals ready for our dinner.
 I took the lazy and easy way out. I didn't even peel off the skin which was a mistake. When we eat, we have to scrape the flesh away from the skin. I cut the brinjals lengthwise into quarters and steamed the brinjals. Before serving, I drizzled onion oil plus scallop sauce and sprinkled crispy fried onions over it.
 I bought a piece of tenderloin pork and thinking that it was a small piece, I use up the whole thing. I haven't been cooking regularly and looks like I over estimated the amount. This was too much for 2 people to finish. Ended up keeping more than half for the next day. The pork slices were marinated and pan fried. It was served with sweet and sour pickled onions and bird's chilies to make it more appetizing.

  9. Brinjals are new to me but look like a courgette or cucumber.
    A great fence selection!

    1. Cucumber is crunchy, juicy, and can be eaten raw. Brinjal has to be cooked and it is soft.

    1. Lol! I can't remember exactly but the basic marinates are oyster sauce, pepper, salt, sugar, plus you can also add whatever sauces that you think will make the pork tasty.

    1. Thank you, Eileen! Brinjals are different from squash. It is slightly spongy and when cooked, they are very soft. Have a great day!

  21. My Beloved Wife planted brijals in front of the house. There was a time that we harvested so much of it that we give some of it to our neighbors and friends.

    We usually cook brinjals with other veggies. Some times we fry it ala omelette.
