How to Make Achari Baingan

  1. Rinse the baby brinjals with water. Wipe them with a kitchen towel.

  2. Make an ‘X’ ( – a cross) at the bottom of each brinjal slitting them lengthwise leaving intact from the stem.

  3. Mix nicely achaar ka masala, salt, red chili powder and mango powder.

  4. Stuff each brinjal with a tablespoon or so of the spice mix.

  5. Press the brinjal gently in between your palm and fingers to let it hold the spice mix.

  6. Set aside stuffed brinjals for 10 - 15 minutes.
