Grind the roasted ingredients,salt to coarse paste with water and set aside.Take the eggplant,trim the stalk and cut it as shown in the picture.Stuff the eggplants with the ground paste and arrange it on a plate.

Heat a pressure pan with oil and crackle the cumin, fennel seeds.Saute the onion and curry leaves till it becomes soft,add the tomatoes,a pinch of salt and cook it mushy.

Now add the stuffed eggplant and saute till the color changes,then add a cup of water and the remaining masala paste,turmeric powder.Close the pan with the lid and cook it for one whistle in a medium flame.Once the pressure subsides open the pan,cook it for a minute and garnish it with coriander leaves.

Eggplant curry is ready to serve with rice or rotis.

  • This curry can be made in pan which takes long time to cook and needs more oil.
  • A tsp of tamarind paste can be added for extra tangy taste.
  • After adding the sesame seeds immediately turn off the stove otherwise it may pop up.
  • Curry leaves can be added while roasting the ingredients for the stuffing which gives a nice aroma.
  • Water can be adjusted according to the desired consistency.
