notes:

  • optionally you can add tempering to your gulla koddel with hing.
  • make sure your brinjal doesn’t have much seeds. else it will not taste great.
  • mattu gulla bolu koddel taste good with mattu gulla (green eggplant). do not try this with blue eggplant.
  • soaking brinjal cubes in water is mandatory, do not skip. as it helps to get rid of bitterness and avoid from turning black.
  • this koddel should thick, so add water accordingly.
