Brinjal - Potato Palya in Mysoorean Style

"Brinjal Palya" is prepared in Mysoorean style. It is a easy recipe with magnificent flavors. 
The main ingredient for this recipe is brinjal, but also used potatoes to give a smooth texture.
This recipe tastes best when made with green brinjals. Due to non-availability, I have used purple- long brinjals.

Previously I had posted Brinjal and potato poriyal. But this recipe is from Mysore cuisine.
