  Brinjal stuffed with peanuts and other spices, perfect one to pair with rice and roti. This stuffed brinjals, i have never attempted before, i got tempted to try this after tasting this in my friend’s place . Though i like brinjals very much, i usually make brinjal curry out of it or i make Baingan Bhartha, with the it. After tasting this at my friend’s place i decided to try this on my own and i did, and here comes the recipe. It came out really very nice.This goes very well with jowar roti.

  • Slit the brinjal and do not cut them fully. We need to stuff the filling into it. Stuff 1 tblsp of the filling into the slit eggplant.
  • Stuff the masala inside the brinjals carefully, till the tip of the brinjal.
  • Use it according to the size of the brinjal.

wow luks really tempting jeyashri,am a gr8 fan of brinjal,have to try this…

Arthi November 30, 2013 - 9:46 pm

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

Shobana Paramasivam May 19, 2014 - 7:46 am

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….
