Stuffed Brinjal Curry

( Click image for enlarged view )

There are so many variations of stuffed brinjal curry. This is one of my favorite version. You can make this in pan or in pressure cooker. If using pressure cooker keep it for one whistle and switch of immediately.This way you will save lot of time, I normally pressure cooker but this i used a pan.I am sure you will enjoy this curry.

Preparation Time: 15 min
Cooking Time : 20 min

  • 10 to 12 brinjals (eggplant)

  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup peanuts
  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds

For tempering

Preparing the stuffed brinjal curry:
Wash the brinjal , do not remove the stem , and slit them vertically and horizontally like a plus sign without breaking them into halves.Now stuff the mixture in each brijal ,after stuffing all of them if still the masala remain ,then add to it the remaining tamarind pulp with some water to it to make a thin paste n keep aside .
