Muzhu kathirikai / Brinjal with coconut stuffing

Stuffed brinjal is an easy and delicious side for everyday menu. There are quite a number of ways that its made. My mom makes the one with a spicy coconut mixture stuffing and it tastes yummm. A simple blend of spices stuffed inside tender brinjals and then cooked on medium flame for a little while makes this dish a tasty treat for an everyday lunch menu

In our house we eat it with rasam rice and we feel the combination awesome

Serves...2 ppl

This is what u'll need....

Brinjals - 6 small and firm
Coconut - 1/8th
Cumin seeds - 1 tspn
Red chilli - 3

Oil - 2 tbspn
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....
  • Slice coconut thinly and put them in a mixer jar
  • Grind coconut, cumin, red chilli, tamarind and salt to a coarse paste

  • To cut the brinjal, keep the top part safe with the stem and cut 2-3 long slits. They should look a flower when you press with a fingers between the slit. Take care not to cut them too far or they will fall apart
  • Stuff the ground mixture equally into all the brinjals
  • Heat oil in a pan. Add little water to the remaining paste and add it to the pan
