Baingan, or eggplant, is a very popular vegetable that is prepared across the length and breadth of India. The stuffed eggplant dish we are preparing today is a North-Indian dish that is prepared in the Punjabi style.

You can serve this dish as a side dish with roti or some crisp parathas.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 30 min
Ready in: 45 min
Yields: 3-4 servings

Ingredients

  • 250 grams small round baingan (eggplant)
  • 2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 1 large tomato, chopped
  • 2 tsp hara dhania (cilantro), chopped
  • 1 tsp coriander powder
  • 1/2 tsp amchur (mango powder)
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp salt

Instructions

  1. Remove the stalks of the baingan (eggplant). At the round end of each baingan, make two cuts at a right angle to each other. Don't cut all the way down. The cuts should be about three-quarters (3/4) of the way down, so that the baingan remains whole. See video below for reference. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, add all of the spices and salt. Mix well.
  3. Stuff each baingan with the spice mixture.
  4. Heat the oil in a pan on high heat; then reduce the heat to low. Place all of the baingan in the pan. Cover with a lid.
  5. At regular intervals of 2-3 minutes, lift the lid and turn over the baingan till they are about 80-85% cooked.
  6. Add the tomatoes and cover with the lid. Cook for 2 minutes.
  7. Remove the lid and stir-cook the tomatoes till they are nice and soft. Keep stirring continuously.
  8. Garnish the stuffed baingan dish with some chopped hara dhania. Serve hot.

      Yes, 4 waystoyummy, it is dried & ground mango pulp. Alternatively, you can use amchur powder which is dried & ground pomegranate seeds. Both are sour and natural and that is the purpose of adding them.

      Are there any substitutions for mango powder. I live on an island and I'm certain not to find it here. However I can buy fresh mangos and dehydrate them. Is this mango powder used frequently in Indian cooking? Thank you, I love eggplant!
