Stuffed Brinjal Recipe

Stuffed Brinjal or Bharwa Baingan is actually a special incredible dish. In this baby eggplants are cut and stuffed with onion, garlic, coconut and spice. When cooked it makes a delicious dish and the overall look of the dish is also appealing which is even more certain to earn you some kind comments. The entire procedure of preparing the filling, to the cutting of the veggie, to stuffing and lastly cooking is time consuming and yet enjoyable. In India most of the regions/states make their own small changes to this recipe. Today I am posting here Maharastrian style stuffed brinjal recipe.
