How to Make Guthi Vankaya

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