Spicy Lentils stuffed brinjal

This style of stuffed brinjal is very delicious in taste.I tried all types of stuffed brinjal but, i like this admist all.It gives unique taste with three varieties of dals(lentils).I came across this dish during  my visit to sis in Summer..So, I tried it once and here goes one of the tastiest recipe.


  1. Brinjal 2 lbs
  2. Tomato half 
  3. One onion
  4. Ginger and garlic(2 pods of garlic and  2 small pieces of ginger.)
  5. Daniya 1 Tspn
  6. Chana dal 2 tbspns
  7. Urad dal 2 tbspn
  8. Toor dal 2 tbspns
  9. Red chillies 3
  10. Curry leaves 2 strings
  11. Turmeric1 Tspn
  12. Salt to taste
  13. Oil as needed 

Preparation :

For this curry I prefer small green brinjal.Cut brinjal as shown in the pic without discarding the stem.You  can cut it as a plus at the base till the stem ensuring that the brinjal doesn't disintegrate. Meanwhile prepare the onion and ginger garlic paste. (Use 1/2 onion for the paste)

For stuffing::

Dry roast urad dal,chana dal toor dal,curry leaves,coriander seeds,red chillies into powder.The powder need not to be very fine.Then after keep aside.Mix onion ginger garlic paste with the dry roast powder.Slowly stuff this masala paste in  brinjal.Keep aside left over masala paste for the curry.


  1. Heat oil in a pan, when it is hot add chopped onions,when they r transparent  add  left over masala paste and sauté well for3 to5 mins
  2. When the masala is well fried add  chopped tomatos (this is optional) and fry well until they are soft.
  3. Now slowly add stuffed brinjal to this masala paste.Saute few mins then add  2 cups of water(depends how much soft is brinjal and the amount of gravy we prefer.)
  4. Cook around 20 to 25 mins  in a medium frame until brinjal is soft  and it should completely absorb the masala.
  5. Remove the lid and mix it slowly.Now the curry is almost ready.Sprinkle some coriander leaves on top of it.We can have with rice and chapathi too.
