Method of cooking Stuffed brinjal recipe

Let us make things ready ,first of all we will start with grinding the masala required for stuffing ,grind all the ingredients – peanuts,ginger-garlic,garam masala,salt,sesame seeds,coconut .Always try to do grinding like activities in the first place because any time power supply could fail in our country ,if it happens our cooking schedule will fail ,so don’t take chances grind it first .


Now its time look at brinjals – for stuffing brinjals we have to slit brinjals in length wise ,but should not separate the pieces & should leave the stalk intact – start cutting from opposite end of stem –cut it down up to 3/4th length ,again make a slit perpendicular to it ,now the brinjal is cut into 4 pieces or slits ,still base of all pieces unified at its bottom side .


Now stuff the brinjals with the masala we have prepared through its slits .The balance of the masala you could add to the curry while cooking .


Now chop onions & tomatoes .


Now we will start cooking our todays Indian brinjal curry – stuffed brinjal .
Heat up the pan ,add oil to it ,add mustard seeds & jeera allow it to splutter completely .Now add onions and green chillies ,Sauté for some time ,and then add the brinjals & remaining masala paste .Fry for few minutes .Now add chopped tomatoes ,turmeric powder ,chilli powder ,salt & half cup of water .Close the pan with a lid ,keep the flame to minimum(sim) and keep stirring every few minutes with out smashing the brinjals .Cooking brinjals may take a long time around 40 minutes ,as we have kept the flame low – should not increase the flame to high as the powders we have added may get sticked to the bottom of the pan & may get burned ,so it is necessary to keep the flame low, closing the lid ,so that steam will not escape ,stir every 5 minutes .
When you notice that brinjal turns soft & the oil floats to the top it indicates that the brinjal is cooked ,now switch off the flame & garnish the curry with coriander leaves .
Serve the stuffed brinjals with hot rice & ghee .
