Gutti Vankaya Koora kaaram Petti | Stuffed Brinjal Curry | Baingan sabji

It's holiday time and I miss my mom so much.We use to have lots of fun when I was with her few years back. I don't want to exaggerate that she is a best cook but she is one for me.It's almost 10 years I left home still I can feel the aromas of my mom's kitchen.For this recipe I have to say I tried many variations in powders still all those are just temporary. It's like  a phase that's it when the madness is over I will be back to the same old mom's recipe. 
The same stuffing powder can be used for all the veggies which you can stuff. 

6 Brinjals
2Tbs oil
Stuffing powder
1/2 Cup urad dal 
1/4 Cup channa dal
3 Red chilli's
5 Methi seeds 
Small piece of tamarind.

Dry Roast all the stuffing ingredients except for salt & tamarind.Just fry them till they turn light brown & cool them aside before making it a powder. Grind coarsely along with salt & tamarind.

Take a brinjal and make a slit in between & repeat the same with rest of the brinjals.
Take the powder in a bowl & mix it with 1 tsp of oil.Stuff it in brinjals and place them slowly in a pan. Now switch on the heat and add 1 tbs oil to the pan. Close it with a lid and allow them to cook.
Once they are cooked well remove the lid and add rest of the oil to pan and fry them well.Sprinkle a little stuffing powder at the end and saute it for few seconds & switch of the heat.

Curry is ready to serve with hot rice.

1. You can add sesame & coriander seeds for the stuffing ingredients.
2. Adjust oil accordingly as I used a nonstick one it took much less oil. 
3. Refrigerate the remaining powder in a air tight container.
4. Adjust red chilli's based on your spice levels.


  1. Omg, just drooling over that irresistible stuffed brinjal curry...makes me hungry..

  2. Just reading through the recipe made my mouth water. I love Brinjals, but have never seen something like this. I was wondering if we can actually bake it after filling. Maybe I can just give it a try.
