Ingredients


To Be Mixed Together Into A Masala Mixture
1 1/2 cups finely chopped onions
1/4 cup unsalted peanuts , roasted and coarsely crushed
1/4 cup freshly grated coconut
4 tsp chilli powder
3 1/2 tbsp tamarind (imli) pulp
2 tbsp grated jaggery (gur)
1/2 tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
1 tbsp garam masala
1 tbsp finely chopped coriander (dhania)
1 tsp oil (optional)
salt to taste

Other Ingredients
8 small brinjals , black variety
1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds ( rai / sarson)
1/4 tsp asafoetida (hing)

For The Garnish
2 tbsp finely chopped coriander (dhania)

Method
  1. Make a criss-cross slit on each brinjal taking care not to separate the segments.
  2. Stuff each brinjal evenly with the prepared masala mixture (you will require approximately ¼th of the masala mixture) and keep the remaining mixture aside for later use.
  3. Heat the oil in a pressure cooker and add the mustard seeds.
  4. When the seeds crackle, add the asafoetida and the remaining masala mixture and sauté on a medium flame for a minute.
  5. Add the stuffed brinjals and 1/3 cup of hot water, mix gently and pressure cook on a high flame for 3 whistles.
  6. Allow the steam to escape using quick release method, (refer handy tip) before opening the lid. Serve hot garnished with coriander.

Handy tip:

  1. Quick release method: also called the cold-water release method, it is used to release pressure quickly. To use this method, remove the pressure cooker from the burner, place in the sink and run cold water gently over the lid until the steam dissipates.
  2. When putting the pressure cooker in the sink, tilt the handle up so the water flows away from you. Quick release works best for foods where you need to control the timing and degree of cooking.

Tried this recipe, tasted yummy and was easy to make. The only thing i would change the next time I try, would be to reduce the chilli powder to 2 tsp.
