Baby brinjals stuffed with Indian spices and stir fried- from the state of Uttar Pradesh
During summers we often make stuffed vegetables which easily stays well for 2-3 days ,though we can make many variety of stuffed vegetables but baby brinjals are so popular that we have numerous variation of making them,every region have there own favorite way of making them.
In southern part of India ,tamarind and coconut is used to make bhawa baigan and in Maharashtra and Gujarat they use peanuts,gram flour for stuffing. But in Uttar pradesh we rarely use coconut and tamarind.Though there are few popular variation of making bharwa baigan in Uttar pradesh according to individual taste and choice, but this simple and delicious version of bharwa baigan is the most popular as only dry spices are used to make this so its quick and have a long shelf life so great to make in summers and also a good travel food
I have also posted – Kashmiri khattey baigan , Amritsari masala baigan , Masala Baigan which are equally delicious and tempting.
I have used fresh coriander with the dry spices but you can also use fresh fenugreek leaves/methi instead. It taste great with- Aam ki launji
