Fried Brinjal in Creamy Yoghurt Sauce

This Brinjal Yoghurt gravy is made from a blend of coconut and cashews and done with little spices available in your kitchen.Adding Yoghurt gives the gravy a twist in taste.I found it good enough to be made for a change. Just try it.It can be done in 15 mins Cooking-time and serves 4-5 nos. This can be done with Fried Okra or potato or french beans or spinach also.It will go with Steamed rice or Ghee Rice or Jeera Rice or Fried Rice or pulao or Chapati instead of  Veg.Raita.
