Bharwan Baingan always means a dose of excitement for your taste buds, whether it is made the Punjabi way with a rich coconut-based masala, or in a healthy way with less oil!
Here is a super tasty version of Bharwan Baingan, in which the brinjals are stuffed with a sweet, tangy and spicy besan mixture before pressure-cooking. The pressure-cooking methods enable you to get the same traditional taste without using oodles of oil!
You will enjoy the multi-faceted flavour of this dish, which tastes awesome with hot rotis .
- Heat the oil in a broad non-stick pan, add the cumin seeds and asafetida and allow the seeds to crackle.
- When the seeds crackle, add the onions and sauté on a medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes.
- Add the turmeric powder, chilli powder and besan and sauté on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
- Add the tamrind pulp, jaggery, coriander, salt and ¼ cup of water, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally.
- Divide the mixture into 8 equal portions and keep aside.
- Slit the brinjals in the centre to make a criss-cross mark that divides each brinjal into 4 parts joined at the stem.
- Stuff the slits of each brinjal with the prepared mixture and keep the remaining mixture aside.
- Combine the stuffed brinjals and the remaining mixture with ½ cup of water, mix well and pressure cook for 3 whistles.
- Garnish with coriander and serve hot.
