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.


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.


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 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!!

  16. archana..i don't use tamarind as my hubby avoids it..ceratinly tamarind will add up taste. looking forward for your version.

  17. name is Hira frm S'pore.i like to try this receipe out, but i m not exactly sure i understand your instructions.
    .."Have the paste ready. Cut the brinjal's in "X" shape. now stuff the gravy into it.let those brinjal's absorb the gravy." Exactly what gravy is this? How do i prpare the gravy?

  18. Hi hira.. Thanks for spotting the pblm and mention. gravy is the paste that have been grounded, i meant. i will correct the recipe now.

    do try it! its my favo!

  19. I have corrected the whole recipe Hira. hope you get it now!

  20. Hi Lavi, My grandmum makes Brinjals with peanut curry in it and they are stuffed and they use to taste wonderful.. if you can please make a recipe like that do post it.. i'll really look fwd to that.... thanks in advance

  21. The best brinjal enna curry I ever had. I was actually searching for such a taste and consistency. In the past 5 days me and almost 5 of my friend's family have enjoyed this curry, With the pinju naatu kathirikkai we get here this tastes divine. It pairs best for spongy idlis rather than rice :) Thanks Lavi !

  22. Thank You so much Nirmala! Convey my thanks to your friends too!
