How to make Ennai Badnekayi

  1. Dry roast all the ingredients on medium flame separately. Ensure they don’t burn. Allow it to cool. Blend all the ingredients to a fine powder. Add salt to taste.
  2. Slit the Eggplant into 4 parts and stuff the dry masala generously. Repeat the process for all of them. Keep the excess dry Masala aside.
  3. Heat 2 Tbsp of oil in a wok. Place all the stuffed eggplants and roast on medium flame till they become tender. Add water to the excess masala and make a watery mixture. Once the brinjals are soft and tender, pour this mixture.
  4. Add salt to taste. Let it simmer for 5 minutes. The mixture will start getting thick. Mix well and switch off the flame.
  5. Garnish with Fresh Coriander and serve hot with Phulkas or Rotis.
My Tip: Choose medium size Purple brinjals for best flavour.
