Brinjal Varikatris are the smaller variety of Brinjals that are egg-shaped with white-purple strispes on the shiny skin. The creamy, white flesh is enjoyably bitter tasting with several small, soft edible seeds that add up to the much-needed crunch. The stem, though, is thorny at times and needs to dispose of carefully after cutting from the round body.
The Varikatri Brinjal is a treasure of numerous essential minerals with dietary benefits. The best ones out of all remain to be potassium and manganese. These brinjals can be easily cooked as they do not take much time to be ready. Plus, they are low in calories and are a wealthy source of dietary fibers. They are also known as Thai Brinjals as well.
Brinjal contains a significant amount of solanine compound. Hence, the excess consumption of Brinjal can lead to the accumulation of this solanine compound, which can later lead to symptoms of arthritis-like inflammation, joint stiffness, and pain. So as per general advice, people with arthritis should avoid consuming any type of Brinjal.
