Yet another variant of the versatile vegetable, the chu chu or small cluster produce has a distinct flavor with all the benefits of brinjals intact. Brinjals, also known as the Eggplant and Aubergine in the west and as Baingan and Bataun in some countries of South Asia including India, are a low calorie vegetable with a high nutritive value. Rich in B-Vitamins, intake of brinjals helps in keeping blood pressure in check while also lowering bad cholesterol levels. High in fibre, these aid in proper digestion while preventing constipation and the risk of colon cancer. Eating brinjals also promotes healthy looking hair and skin because of a high water content.
Brinjals can be cooked both peeled and unpeeled. For these mini eggplants, you just need to cut slits and stuff them with spices before frying for a mouth-watering savory dish. Another unique quality of brinjals is their ability to be made into a healthful dip that acts as an accompaniment with snacks. You can also roast, grill or steam them as per your taste and preference.
Soil should be mixed with well rotten Cow dung. Sow seeds in rows at distance of 1.5 feet between row to row and 1 feet between plant to plant. Water it immediately and then water as per requirement. Harvest after 90 – 100 days.
