Stuffed Baigan Recipe


6 Baingan / Brinjal 
2 green chilies (finely chopped) 
1 onion (finely chopped) 
1/2 cup ghee / vegetable oil 
2 tbsp lemon juice 
1 tsp salt 
Spices :
4 tbsp coriander seeds 
2 tbsp aniseeds 
1 tbsp cumin seeds 
1 tbsp fenugreek seeds 
1 tsp turmeric powder

How to make stuffed baigan:

  • Clean the baigan and slit them lengthways without halving them.
  • Roast the first four spices together and then grind them to powder and add the turmeric powder.
  • Now mix with the salt, lemon juice and green chilies to make a stuffing.
  • Stuff the mixture between baigan (bringal) and tie them back together with cotton thread to prevent stuffing escaping.
  • Heat the oil / ghee in a large frying-pan and fry the onions until light brown. Add the brinjal and cover tightly.
  • Leave to cook turning occasionally until cooked for about 20-30 minutes.
  • Serve the stuffed baigan (bringal) hot with roti or paratha.
