Recipe by SUSMITA
"This is a classic Andhra dish consisting of roasted eggplant (brinjal) in a sweet and sour stew. The sweetness is from jaggery and the sourness is from tamarind. This pulusu is an excellent accompaniment to patholi, or mudda pappu (plain hard-cooked dal). I also like it just by itself with plain rice and ghee."

Delicious, sweet and spicy! I followed this recipe exactly and loved the results. Another reviewer called it a stew but it's actually more of a side relish meant to accompany rice or flat bread.
Excellent. Starts off sweet,then the spicy and tangy taste kicks in. Yummy! My kids liked it too
