Eggplant

The English language is as funny as confusing to non-English speakers.

Why there is no egg, in eggplant and no ham in, hamburger?

‘I the king of vegetables. dressed in a Royal Purple Robe and crowned in Royal Green, welcome everyone to our Kingdom!!!”

Do you know that Eggplant, popularly known by the name Brinjal, is the king of the vegetables?

Not only in veggie food but also non-vegetarian food, Brinjal, commonly referred to as baigan, has risen in popularity. Within the brinjal, the beautifully rich and glossy purple layer and the meaty yet high nutritional white allowed it to earn the title of the King of Vegetables. Brinjal is a member of the nightshade, which means that the fruit along with the flower of the plant is edible.

  • Brinjal is also known as eggplant.
  •  In its native India, eggplant is commonly used in dishes such as sambar, Dalma (an Odisha-style dal prepared with vegetables), chutney, curry, and achaar (a pickled dish).
  • It is also referred to as the “king of vegetables” due to its versatility and widespread use in both daily and festive Indian food.

    I think the egg in eggplant comes from the oval shape, but I could be wrong! Funny that you posted this today – you will see why on Sunday 😊
