Brinjal is my all time favourite! I can eat brinjal in any form. This Stuffed Brinjal Fry is a simple and flavourful curry to go with rice or roti. The freshly ground masala does the magic here. Usually the stuffing will be made with peanuts and sesame seeds. Since am not a big fan of that combo, have changed the flavours according to our taste buds. If u are like me, try this combo. Have given the usual masala powder option in the tips. Ennai Kathirkkai is my favourite too.

Now to the recipe…

Stuffed Brinjal Fry My Magic Pan



  1. For grinding the masala, u can replace peanuts and sesame seeds instead of chana dal & urad dal along with the other ingredients too. That will have a different unique taste.
  2. Choose small and tender brinjals to make this Stuffed Brinjal Fry.
  3. U can use purple brinjal too. I used green one as this was only available.
  4. While slitting the brinjal, do not cut too deep. Else the masala will ooze out while cooking.
  5. Cook in low-medium flame, so that the masala does not get burnt.
  6. U can add little water and make it as a gravy too.
