    Thalana Batu (Thai Brinjal/Ela Batu)

    Thalana Batu is a variant of Eggplant (Solanum Melongena). Quite distinguishable from the normal Eggplant due to its green textured peel and small round shape, it is a hollow shell like structure which contains tiny seeds. A single Thalana Batu weighs about 20-30 grams on average.

    The Thalana Batu tree grows up to five to six feet in height, and is commonly found in hot, semi-desert like climates of the Northern Central, North-Western and South-Eastern regions of Sri Lanka. Without any considerable change of demand and supply throughout the year, this vegetable is a familiar site in the local markets.

    Rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, locals believe that it contains cardio regenerative capabilities. On a more scientific note, it is quite obviously a good source of Proteins and unsaturated fats backing the earlier claim.

                The Thalana Batu is cut open with a knife and the seeds are scooped out leaving a fleshy shell which is cooked into a thick curry along with coconut milk, and makes a spicy companion to boiled rice. It is also salted and fried and eaten as a snack.
