My childhood memories are filled with delicious vegetable curries cooked by my grand mother at home. I regard her „tempered eggplant (wambatu thel daala)“ dish as one of my favourites. Eggplants grow in abundance in dry zones of Sri Lanka. They´re always on the list for a party menu and may be prepared through various types of cooking methods. One of the methods is „tempered eggplant (wambatu thel daala)“ .
