How to Make Plain Masala Baingan

  • For the Filling:
  • Take a bowl and add peanut powder, til powder, dry coconut powder, turmeric, chilli powder, coriander, garam masala, ginger-garlic paste, jaggery, salt and mix nicely and keep aside.
  • Cut the small brinjals for stuffing, that is just give 2 cuts from the back deep enough to be stuffed.
  • Apply very little salt from your finger inside each brinjal (optional).
  • Fill each brinjal with the mix you prepared and leave some mix aside.
  • Now heat the kadai or any vessel thick from the bottom. Add oil to the vessel and add jeera and rai.
  • Add finely chopped onion and fry for 2 mins then add the left over peanut, till mix, stir for some time, then add finely chopped tomato and green coriander (leave some for garnishing).
  • After tomatoes are cooked, add the stuffed brinjals and water. Put the lid on and cook for 20-25 mins on medium flame with very less stirring as it will break the brinjals.
  • Garnish the brinjals with coriander leaves.
  • Serve the masala baingan with steamed rice.
