read your profile...identified with a lot of things that you have said....the veggie sabjis look great- for the theplas you can also add grated bottle gourd of fenugreek leaves- fresh or dried- tastes really good.

looks like none translated u the meaning of vankaya Kothimeera karam kura, Vankaya is brinjal, Kothimeera means Coriander (leaves/seeds),Karam means hottness of the dish, Kura means vegetable/gravied veggie/dish

put it together u get Brinjal and Coriander in a hot gravy (may be..not good at renaming the items) but I think u got the gist of it!
