Bharwan Baigan — Masala Stuffed Baby Eggplant —-

This is a popular Indian cuisine in which baby eggplants are stuffed with a prepared spice  mixture and then cooked in a tomato based gravy.

Myself an avid fan of brinjals of any shape and sizes ,  had to show you all how to make this interesting recipe.

This is a super tasty dish which can be had with rice or rotis of your choice.

Star Ingredient :

Baby Eggplant

Main Ingredients:

Stuffing Mixture

  • 500 gm of baby eggplant
  • 5 tbsp of roasted Peanut powder
  • 4 tsp of cumin powder
  • 4 tsp of coriander powder
  • 4 tsp of red chilli powder
  • 4 tsp of Maharashtrian Kanda Lasun powder (optional)
  • 2 tsp of turmeric powder
  • Salt to taste

Gravy :

  • 1 cup of onion, garlic and ginger paste
  • 2 medium sized tomato paste
  • 1 tsp of garam masala
  • 1 tsp of red chilli powder
  • 1 tsp of turmeric powder
  • 4 to 5 tbsp of vegetable oil
  • salt to taste

Method :

Combine well all the ingredients of the stuffing mixture , you can add 1 teaspoon of oil to make the mixture into a wet mixture.

Slit the brinjals in the centre to make a criss-cross mark that divides each brinjal into 4 parts joined at the stem.

Stuff the brinjals with the prepared stuffing and keep the remaining stuffing aside.

Heat oil in a wok to a medium heat , add in some cumin seeds and bayleaf, when the seeds starts to crackle add in the onion, ginger and garlic paste. Saute on a medium heat ,after sometime add in the tomato paste and saute until oil oozes out.

Gently add in the stfuffed brinjals and mix  gently with the masala. Add a 2 cups of warm water and cook it for 15 to 20 minutes on a low flame until all the brinjals are cooked and water gets absorbed.

It will be a dry gravy.
