Enne Badane Kayi(Stuffed eggplants/brinjal)


Best side dish that can happen to Jowar roti ( jolada rotti) is perhaps the Enne badane kaayi or stuffed brinjal. Next best thing is of course eating the same.. LOL. There are several recipes for preparing stuffed brinjal, but i have tried to give you the one that follow which i know tastes awesome. The credit really goes to my Sujata aunti from who i learned the fine details of the recipe. Thank you sujata chikki for the wonderful recipe.
