Brinjal/ Baingan/ Kathirikai 4
Besan/ Senagapindi 3/4 cup
Red chilli powder 1 tbsp
Salt to taste
Oil 4 tbsps
Method of preparation:
Wash and pat dry brinjals.
Make a crosswise slit in each brinjal making sure the stem is intact.
In a bowl, mix besan, red chilli powder and salt thoroughly with little bit of oil.
Stuff this besan mixture inside each brinjal tightly.
Heat oil in a pan, add stuffed brinjal and cook closed on medium flame.
After 3 minutes, turn them on other side and again cook covered for 3 more minutes.
Now toss the pan slightly and cook them covered until done.
Notes: I like the brinjals well cooked and crisp. You can take them out even earlier.
