How to Make Nune Vankaya

  • Cut the brinjals lengthwise and make 2 slits, but leave the stalks intact. Put them immediately in salt water.
  • Heat 2 tbsps of oil in a pan and add coriander, methi, cumin seeds, channa dal, sesame seeds, shredded coconut, red chillies and tamarind.
  • Fry till the raw smell of the coriander seeds goes.
  • Then grind them to a smooth paste along with garlic, onion, coriander leaves, turmeric, and salt.
  • Stuff some of this paste into each slit of the brinjals.
  • Heat remaining oil in a vessel, season with mustard, cumin seeds and curry leaves.
  • Wait for it to splutter and slide the brinjals into the vessel slowly.
  • Then add remaining paste to it along with water and jaggery.
  • Cover the vessel and cook on medium heat till the brinjals are tender to touch.
