Stuffed Brinjal Curry

Brinjal is my all time favourite veggie. when i prepared this..i had no idea of blogging this one. but when i tasted it..i wanted to blog. it turned out very tasty.

Ingredients:

Brinjal's / Egg Plant's - 4 (young tender one's)
Oil - 1/4 cup

For paste:

1. Shallots - 10
2. Roasted peanuts - 1/4 cup
3. Tomato - 1
4. Red chilli's - 2
5. Salt - as per taste
6. Garlic - 5 cloves
7. Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
8. Corriander Powder - 2 tsp

Heat a Thick bottomed Pan, roast the peanuts, till they get roasted well. remove the peanuts aside and let it cool.

Now heat a tbsp of oil in the pan and add the shallots / small onion's and fry them well.

Ground the peanuts, shallots, garlic, tomato, red chilli, chilli powder and corriander powder with little salt into a thick paste.


Method:

Give 2 slits on Brinjal's in X shape. Now stuff the Paste into it. Let it get marinate for 15 mins. so that the brinjals absorb the masala from the paste.

Now in a Pan..heat the oil and add mustard..when it pops..drop the brinjal's one by one and fry them well in slow flame for about 7-10 mins. let the brinjals get cooked in the frying process itself. after the brinjal's change their color and cooked well..add the remaining paste. close it with a lid and let them stay in low flame. after 5-8 minutes..you will see oil on the side's of the pan.

Now it's time to serve with Hot Rice.

Absolutely a Finger-licking Curry.shallots and peanuts play their role perfectly.


Enjoy it!!
