  • 100 g - Urad Dal
  • 100 g - Channa dal
  • 3 tbsp - Methi seeds
  • 10 to 15 - dry Red Chillies
  • Lemon size Tamarind
  • 1/2 cup - dry Coconut
  • 500 g - Brinjals
  • salt to taste
  • 1.5 cup - oil
  • How to Make Guthi Vankaya:

    1. Roast urad, chana dal, methi, dry red chillies and coconut. Then grind all these roasted items with tamarind into fine powder and add salt.
    2. Now slit the brinjal into 4 parts and stuff the powder.
    3. Keep some quantity for sprinkling on brinjal and that is the last step.
    4. Heat oil in a thick-bottomed kadai and cook the brinjals on a low flame for 30-45 minutes.
    5. Keep on stirring so that brinjals get cooked evenly.
    6. Make sure that you cover the kadai with a lid.
    7. Pour some water on the lid as this prevents the curry from getting burnt.
    8. Once the brinjals become soft, sprinkle the remaining powder and serve with steaming hot rice.
