Stuffed eggplant-based recipes are very common across India and are made with different types of stuffing and also eggplant. It is mainly served for roti, chapati, or different types of naan, but the dry variant can also be served with rice variants. One such easy and multipurpose eggplant-based recipe is bharwa baingan recipe, known for its spicy masala taste.


As i was explaining earlier, there hundred ways to make a stuffed eggplant recipe. This mainly differs from the way it is stuffed or stuffed masala or even the eggplant used. In this recipe, I have used a purple with white line eggplant which is my favourite compared to all the other eggplants. I personally feel for any stuffed brinjal recipe, these purple-coloured ones are just ideal with the size and tenderness. Anyway, with the stuffed masala I used a unique blend of spices with peanut taking precedence. the south Indian variant includes the use of coconut and til and I have avoided making it north Indian cuisine aligned. Moreover, for the gravy base, I used tomato and onion base, thus making an ideal north Indian curry.

Furthermore, I would like to add some more tips, suggestions, and variations to bharwa baingan recipe. Firstly, the key ingredient for this recipe is the selection of eggplant for it. So you should be using tender and small brinjal for this recipe. Secondly, be generous with the use of oil while making this curry. the flavour just comes out of eggplant when you add oil to it. Lastly, I stuffed the ground spice powder inside the slit brinjal. You may skip it and add it directly to the onion and tomato base while the eggplant is frying. I would not recommend it, but follow it only if you are running short of time.
