How to Make Stuffed eggplant

  • For the masala:
  • Peel onions and cut them into four pieces.
  • Chop tomatoes finely and keep aside.
  • Heat a drop of oil in a pan and add asafoetida, followed by the Bengal gram dal, coriander seeds, cinnamon and red chillies. Roast till it is golden in colour.
  • Cool the roasted ingredients and dry grind them into a fine powder.
  • Now add the cut onions and salt to the powder. Again run the mixer.
  • There is no need to add water while grinding, since the juice of onion is enough to make a paste.
  • To prepare the eggplant:
  • Wash and carefully slit eggplants from the top. Make eight segments (4 cuts), but leave the segments on the stalk. Don't cut so far that the segments break away.
  • Stuff the vegetable in the middle and in between the segments with the ground paste.
  • After stuffing all the eggplants, heat oil in a pan.
  • Add cumin seeds and the chopped tomatoes.
  • Add a pinch of salt and saute for one minute.
  • Arrange the stuffed eggplants in the pan and turn each of them gently to coat with oil.
  • Cover with lid and cook on low fire until it is done.
  • When the vegetable becomes tender remove lid and keep sauteing till it absorbs all the spices.
  • Serve with rice, chapatti or bread.
