Chicken Brinjal Curry is a unique and delicious variation, combination of chicken and brinjal cooked together with few aromatic spices gives a flavorful savour to the dish. The curry tastes extremely well  with   roti, chapatti or rice. This is a brilliant and new version of making a fantastic curry truly unthoughtful off as normally chicken is made with potatoes, bell peppers etc but brinjal also does gives an awesome and unbelievable flavor to the dish.

As most of know that chicken is a high protein food and most of us love eating, Eggplant or Brinjal is also an amazing low calorie vegetable having umpteen healthy nutrition profile especially for the weight watchers. Brinjal is also popularly known as auberine in Western countries.There are a variety of brinjals available in the markets that vary in size, shape and color. In this recipe I am using the green variety that is oval shaped, bright, firm, and smooth with glossy skin. Brinjal is used in making a variety of dishes like stir-fries which is used as a side dish. It is also added in stews, chutneys etc. 

Grilled, mashed and mixed with onions, tomatoes and spices make the Indian dish Baingan ka Bhartha or Gojju, similar to Salată de vinete in Romania, while a mix of roasted eggplant, roasted red peppers, chopped onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, carrots, celery and spices is called Zacuscă in Romania or Ajvar in Serbia and Balkans. Ratatouille is a very popular dish made with a combination of eggplant, tomatoes, onions and zucchini.In Southern India, the brinjals are chopped into pieces and used in making special delicious brinjal rice which is commonly known as Vangi Bhath or brinjal pulao. Every state in India has its own variation of preparing brinjal in different styles adding regional spices.

Some of the popular brinjal recipes are:

Eggplant is a very low calories and fats food. It is rich in soluble fiber content. Scientific studies have shown that these anti-oxidants have potential health effects against cancer, aging, inflammation, and neurological diseases. Eggplants also have good amounts of many essential B-complex groups of vitamins such as pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), pyridoxine (vitamin B6) and thiamin (vitamin B1), niacin (B3).

These vitamins are essential in the sense that body requires them from external sources to replenish and required for fat, protein and carbohydrate metabolism.
