Bharwan Baingan (South Indian Style)

I like Baingan Bharta a lot… but realised that this the only thing that we use to do with Brinjal, so I started trying out different recipes using it… and this one came out to be real good along with Tawa Baingan, which i will definitely post in some time but as of now Stuffed Brinjals are here…



Small Brinjal: 5 Piece
For the Stuffing:
Chana Dal: 1 Tbsp
Urad Dal: 1 Tbsp
Coriander Seeds: 1/2 Tbsp
Curry Leaves: few
Fennel Seeds: 1/2 Tbsp
Garlic : 3 Cloves (opt.)
Red Chilly Dry: 2 Piece
Tamarind Pulp: 2 – 3 Tbsp
Turmeric: 1 Pinch
Cumin Seeds: 1/2 Tbsp
Salt: to taste
Oil: 1 Tbsp + to fry


  • Cut Brinjal into quarter, apply salt inside and keep for 10 mins then wash and deep fry for 30 sec or cook in microwave for 2 mins on high.
  • Heat oil in a Pan add chana dal and roast for 1 min then add urad dal again roast for 1 min then add rest ingredients of stuffing except tamarind pulp (take care to add salt as we have already applied some salt to brinjal) and roast.
  • Grind the mixture once its cool and add tamarind.











    • Stuff this mixture in Brinjals and cook with little oil in a non – stick pan, turning in between so that it is properly cooked on all sides.
    • Serve hot with Chapattis & Naans….
