The Brinjal, is the popular vegetable of the masses, is native to India which grows almost  in every season. In India ,Vankaya is called as "Koorallo Raaju"--King for Vegetables.The most common variety, the glossy purple Brinjal is a familiar component of Indian curries. This in expensive vegetable was known as Malayan purple melon in China. There it was a common food item since 600 BC.
