Gutti Vankaya Kura (Andhra Style Stuffed Eggplant Curry)
Instructions
  1. Make a “X” cut on the bottom of the eggplant, about 3/4th of the way up, making sure that the eggplant still holds together and does not become pieces. Keep aside.
  2. Dry roast the ingredients listed under masala and grind along with tamarind pulp, salt and a few drops of water to make a smooth, thick paste.
  3. Gently open the eggplants and stuff the masala inside. Continue doing it for the remaining eggplants. Set any remaining stuffing to the side as this will be used to make the gravy for the dish.
  4. Heat 2tbsp oil in a sauté pan; arrange the stuffed eggplants in the pan. Cook covered on medium low heat until eggplants are about ¾th cooked.
  5. Add ½ cup of water to the left over masala and pour it into the pan, cover and cook until the sauce is bubbly and the eggplants are cooked all the way through.
  6. Check seasonings and serve.
