    Gutti Vankaya - Stuffed Brinjal

    Andhra style stuffed brinjal.

    I roast the spices and make powder ahead, and have frozen onion/tomato gravy, so it takes about 5 mins to close IP lid.

    Make this powder and store in fridge. Can last upto 3-4 weeks, and can be used 3-4 times.

    Roast, cool & grind:
    Peanuts - 3 tbsp
    Coriander/Dhanya - 4 tbsp
    Jeera/ cumin - 1 tbsp
    Khush khush/poppy seeds - 1.5 tsp
    Till/Sesame seeds 1tbsp
    Methi/fenugreek ½ tsp
    Dry coconut - 4 tbsp
    Karyapak - 15-20 leaves
    Chana daal - 1.5 tbsp
    Black pepper - 1 tsp
    Whole garam masala of your choice - cloves, cardamom, bay leaf.


    Slit 15 small brinjals. Leave stalk part whole.
    IP in saute mode.
    Oil → mustard, cumin, whole red chillies
    onion/tomato/ginger-garlic gravy (about 10 ounces. I use frozen)
    This is the part I like:
    Add the onion/tomato/gg frozen cubes, slit brinjals, 2 gr. Chillies, turmeric, salt, some dhanya powder, 1/3 cup thick tamarind water, red chilli powder, 3 tbsp of roasted masala powder.

    Stir 2 mins.
    Add ¾ cup water. Cancel saute. Pressure cook 2 mins high. NPR.

    Open, dish is ready to serve.

    If roasted masala and onion/tomato gravy are made in advance, this takes about 5-7 mins of standing by the IP.

    Without premade onion/tomato gravy:
    Add chopped onion, saute. Add chopped tomato after brinjals.

    ==========
    This recipe is useful if masala and onion/tomato gravy are made ahead. And if you are not too technical about how can it be called stuffed brinjal if the masala is not stuffed into brinjal. : ) If it tastes like brinjal, looks like brinjal, smells like brinjal, it is gutti vankaya.

    Also helps if you don't know how gutti vankaya is actually supposed to taste. : )

    Instruction is up to the mark, but, "after it made noise of completion of cooking" is so like an instruction from a hungry man. : ) Or from a wife directing him remotely. : )

    And also when he updates with recipes and cooking report a day before Mrs. V returns. : )

    Viswa for a long time I used to think you have to be too good to be true. Until I learnt you are true and you are good. : )

    Instruction is good because of your earlier comments about the process. I do my work in the office room and keep the door open to listen to the IP. I haven't told my wife as yet about today's recipe as it is too late now. :) Moreover, she is going to be jealous because my son ate today's recipe at home.

    Note: Even if I tell her, she is going to lecture me how to clean the IP and keep it back where she kept it before she left for India.

    By now you have crafted enough delicious rice variations to write a cookbook on IP rice recipes. If you write one I will buy it for Mr G for my India trips. : ) Safe travels! Enjoy your trip.
