Brinjal Stuffed with Onions and Potatoes

S

tuffed brinjal or Barawan baigan is eggplant stuffed with spiced onion and potatoes. I've already posted Brinjal stuffed with coconut. This is another version of it. The stuffing varies so much that if you go on changing the stuffings, the Curry tastes Divine and different every time you change it and taste it. 


Ingredients
Small brinjal - 4
Onion - 1 smalla
Potato - 1 medium
Bengal gram flour (Besan) - 2 tsp
Tamarind pulp - 2 tsp
Jaggery powder - 2 tsp
Coniander powder - 1 tsp
Salt - 3/4 tsp
Red chili powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/2 tsp
Hing - 1/8tsp

Method
Boil the potato. Cut the onion finely. Wash the brinjals and slit them cross in 4 pieces. Keep the stem intact. Add oil in a pan. When the oil is hot add cumin seeds and hing. When the seeds crackle add onions and saute them. Add besan and fry it. Add salt, coriander powder, turmeric powder and chili powder. Fry for 2 mins. Add grated boiled potato, tamarind pulp and Jaggery. Fry for another 3 mins.
Stuff the slits with this masala. Take care not to separate the segments. Half the masala will be left.



In another pan add 1 tsp oil. Add the remaining masala and 1/4 cup water. Place the stuffed brinjals in the pan. Cover and cook. keep on changing the sides of brinjal occasionally. 



Serve hot with chapati.
