About Chidambaram Kathirikai / Brinjal Gothsu

As Tirunelveli is for halwa, Manaparai for murukku, Madurai for jiggirthanda, Chidambaram's Kathirikkai / Brinjal Gothsu is very famous and tasty. Usually we make Gothsu in a gravy form. But here it is made thicker than gravy and almost to the consistency of Thokku / pickle. It is given along with Sambha rice in Lord nataraja Temple and there onions are not added. But while served in hotels and feasts small onions are added and this side dish is really a mouth watering, spicy and flavourful that can be had with anything...
