  2. Wow.. yummy.. this filling seems to be new to me and sounds like a must try 🙂 my dad loves brijals. So will make this for him. 🙂

    Love the pics as usual, especially the one in which you have shown a cut brinjal 🙂

  3. Just a small healthier variation…I microwave the brinjals for couple of minutes before stuffing. This way it consumes less oil while cooking and the brinjals are done in 10 minutes

  4. Looks yummy….. tempting… i used to grind coconut, small onions(, dhaniya, channa dal,red chilly– dry roasted) and stuff this mixture in brinjal and fry this along with onion and tomato…… adding peanuts enriches the taste….
