Ingredients of Achari Baingan
8 - 10 small brinjals (baingan)
Salt to taste
2 teaspoon mango powder (amchur)
1/2 teaspoon red chili powder
1/2 Cup achaar ka masala
1/4 Cup mustard oil (sarson oil)
How to Make Achari Baingan
Rinse the baby brinjals with water. Wipe them with a kitchen towel.
Make an ‘X’ ( – a cross) at the bottom of each brinjal slitting them lengthwise leaving intact from the stem.
Mix nicely achaar ka masala, salt, red chili powder and mango powder.
Stuff each brinjal with a tablespoon or so of the spice mix.
Press the brinjal gently in between your palm and fingers to let it hold the spice mix.
Set aside stuffed brinjals for 10 - 15 minutes.
Heat mustard oil in a heavy bottom pan till it starts smoking. Reduce the heat to low.
Arrange the stuffed brinjals in the pan without over-lapping each other.
Cook the stuffed brinjals over low heat till they turn soft and nicely cooked.
While cooking brinjals do not turn them frequently.
