Brinjal Prawn Masala

I was thinking to make this dish for a year. But somehow dint get perfect time to make this dish. You can definitely try this dish even if you don't like eggplant(Indian brinjals from Indian store). Very spicy and tasty dish. You can enjoy with chapathi, dosa and with naan(Indian bread).

Regarding rose in the picture, I just gave it a try to make the rose using tomato skin. It worked!!!!. Thanks to my friend who told me how to make this. She told just peel the tomato and swirl it to get rose shape. Wow simple easy tip gave me good tomato rose. You can try too for a nice presentation.
