roju thinna mari..moje teranidi...
taaja kuralalo raaja evarante...vere cheppala vankayenandi...(Song from a Telugu Movie "Yegire pavurama")
Isn't it True??Brinjal is king of veggies...Here comes another spicy and traditional recipe from my blog..Gutthi Vankaya...This is made in different ways and using different Ingridents...This is how I did this dish according to my taste...
I want to send this recipe as my entry for the contest conducted by TOUNGE TICKLERS for the nov month FIC - Purple & Black - Color Event
And Sending this to FIL- Brinjal at Sanghi's Food Delights
Brinjal:15(small and round)
Oil:For Deep Frying the Brinjals
Ingridents For Masala (For Stuffing)
Garam Masala:1/2 spn
Tamrind:medium Lemon Size
Salt:Acc to taste
1.Wash the brinjals and dry them using a paper towel and cut(upto 3/4 of the brinjal) them inti X mark with out detaching the stalk..
2.Pour Oil for deep frying the brinjal..When the oil is ready fry the brinjal for 1 min remove them from oil and put them aside.
3.Now in another pan pour little oil..when hot fry all the ingridents listed under ingridents for stuffing,add salt acc to ur taste and let the mixture cool..Make it into a coarse powder with out adding water.
4.Stuff this coarse powder into the deep fried Brinjals.
5.In a pan add 2 spns of oil and now add the stuffed brinjals and remaining ground masala to the pan and cover it with a lid and cook the brinjals on all the sides.
6.Garnish it wid little Cliantro.
7.Serve it hot with plain rice.
This is a dry version of gutthi vankaya..If u want it in a gravy type..All the steps r same but in step 5 when the brinjals r cooked on all sides add tamrind juice(squezeed from small sized tamrind).And let the tamrind juice come to boil along with the brinjals.
