Vankaya Pesarapappu Gutti Kura


Brinjal 5
Moong dal 1/2 cup
Red chillies 3-5
Salt to taste
Oil 3 tbsps

Method of preparation:

Wash and soak moong dal in water for 30 minutes.
Use as little water as you can and make a coarse paste with soaked moong dal, red chillies and salt.

Wash brinjal and carefully slit its stomach twice.
Dip in cold water and keep aside.

Stuff each brinjal with moong dal paste carefully.

Heat oil in a deep pan on medium low, add the above stuffed brinjal and close the lid.

Then let them stand with stuffed side facing down.
When each side is cooked well, serve with rice.

Choose small brinjals which makes them easy to cook and eat.

    Stuffing with moong dal? Never heard of it. You have managed to keep the shape of the brinjal.

    Love andhra dishes, they taste good with few ingredients you are done with your dish. I am also an andhrite and love all your collection of recipes. I usually make stuffed brinjal with either senagapindi or kura karam. This is definetely a variation to the routine one.
