round brinjal cubes
To cube round brinjals, wash, pat dry and place on a chopping board. Cut off the stem and make a cut from the centre to cut into halves. Now, place each halve on the chopping board, with the purple skin facing you and make 6 to 7 vertical slits lengthwise on each halve. Cut each vertical slit again into 6 to 7 equal pieces breadthwise to get cubes. Make finer or thicker slits to cut cubes according to recipe requirement. Round Brinjal cubes are commonly used in gravies, stews and dry subzis.
