Hot dosa with Brinjal Sambhar & Mint chutney

My chechi (domestic help), made this combination during the time I was sick and was literally bedridden for a week. She said "acca try this combination, don't know if you'd would like it, because you're used to the regular chutney and sambhar. I tell you this is in tamil style "romba nallathe" combo. I tried this today after having tasted what I was served atleast 5 months back..my words echo"mein khush or tummy bhi khush"!!

Brinjal Sambhar

Brinjal- 2 small quartered.
Green gram  - 1/2cup
MTR Sambhar powder - 2tbs
Tamarind paste - 1tbs
Jaggery or sugar - 1tbs or more
Onion - 1
Coriander leaves to garnish

Soak the green gram in water for about 5hours. Cook the green gram till it is soft and keep aside. In the meantime fry the sambhar powder and then add the onion and quartered brinjal and saute. Add tamarind paste  to the brinjal and a cup of water. Add salt and the cooked green gram and cook till the brinjal becomes soft. Once cooked, add chopped coriander leaves and serve hot.

Mint Chutney

Mint leaves - 2 bunches
Green chilly - 1

Grind all the ingredients together. Serve with dosa and sambhar.
