Masala Mini Brinjal

This is my mother in law's recipe. She would make it every-time I'd visit her. So one of these days I tried my version of it. ( With onion and Garlic )

Here is the recipe -

Ingredients –

Brinjals -7-8 Smallest variety that you get.

Tamarind – 1 small ball

Turmeric -1 teaspoon

Asafoetida –1 teaspoon

Cumin ( Jeera ) powder- 1 tablespoon

Black Pepper powder – 1 teaspoon

Garlic – 5-6 cloves

Onion – 1 onion cut into big chunks

Oil – 6-7 Tablespoon

Cumin ( Jeera ) – 1 teaspoon

Mustard seeds – 1 teaspoon

Curry leaves – 8-10

Coriander – Half cup finely chopped


1. Wash brinjals.

2. Take pot with water. Add turmeric and tamarind. Bring it to boil. Add Brinjals in it. Let it boil for 4-5 mins ( Not more than that. We do not want to completely cook Brinjal)

3. Let it cool.

4. In a pot, mix red chilli powder, coriander powder, black pepper powder, Turmeric, Hing ( Asafoetida) , salt , Jeera powder.

5. Make small slits to baingan into four parts from top. And stuff above mixture in Brinjal.(Don't slit completely)

6. In a pan heat oil. Add mustard, cumin and curry leaves. Let it splutter.

7. Add garlic and onion. Saute it and then add Brinjal in it.

8. Cook for about 15-20 mins on medium flame.
