Vayanganna Talasani(1)

The first harvest of Eggplant was rather modest. I just got one round eggplant. I first thought of making sambar with all the garden vegetables, but then I decided against it and thought, let me celebrate each and every vegetable. I had to buy 2 small eggplants from theIndian stores to make this Talasani.
