i have posted quite a few stuffed eggplant or stuffed brinjal recipes in my blog. basically, i have tried to cover different regions of india and have prepared it separately. however somehow, i missed the popular marathi cuisine variant. this was highlighted by one of my readers recently. even i was surprised that i have missed my neighbour state vangi recipes. it is almost similar to my state or kannada cuisine ennegayi recipe, but there are subtle differences. in this recipe, i have used goda masala for the stuffing which makes it unique. it does not elevate the spice level, but brings in a lot of flavours to it. in addition, i have also added green and fresh coriander leaves for the earthy flavour.

furthermore, some more additional tips, suggestions and variations to bharli vangi recipe. firstly, i have used the purple coloured eggplant for this and i would heavily recommend the same. moreover, try to use small and tender brinjal and avoid green coloured for this recipe. secondly, for the stuffing masala, i have added goda masala and it does not have spice heat. hence i have added red chilli powder for the spice heat. however, you may add garam masala as an alternative to goda masala and you may have to reduce chilli powder to half. lastly, cook the eggplant with a sufficient amount of water with the masala. due to the peanuts added, the gravy thickens quickly.
