Stuffed eggplants with soy granules

‘twist- in – the – tale’ of taste is my middle name πŸ˜‰ i love to experiment with my sense of food aroma, texture and taste……. This has it’s pro and con, but no matter i usually never ponder over it πŸ˜›

this is a total vegetarian successful experiment. When i say vegetarian, it instantly reminds me of my friend and fellow blogger, Sonal Gupta. She churns out magical vegetarian food preparations with all drool pics ^_^

here’s presenting Stuffed eggplants, easy to cook and great on taste.Β Picture 073Be innovative with the stuffing… If you are a non vegetarian, replace the granules with mince mutton or chicken.

Let loose your imagination over the garnishing. πŸ™‚

Cheers !!!



2Β  – eggplants ( medium sized)

1 cup(dry) – soy granules (soaked in warm salted water)

1 tbsp – oil + extra (for brushing)

1 – onion (medium sized)

1 – tomato ( large sized)

1 tsp – ginger paste

1 tsp – garlic paste

ΒΌ tsp – turmeric powder

1 tsp – cumin powder

Β½ tsp – coriander powder

Β½ tsp – chili powder

Salt to taste

1 tbsp – chopped fresh coriander


Soak the granules in warm salted water for 30 minutes. Finely chop the onion and tomato . Keep aside. Cut the eggplants in half lengthwise and scoop out the inner flesh. Preheat oven to 1800 C. Place the eggplants shells cut side up in a lightly greased dish and bake for 5 – 6 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a pan/wok, heat 1 tbsp oil and fry the onion till translucent. Add the ginger and garlic paste and the chopped tomato. Fry for till it releases oil. Add the turmeric, cumin, coriander, chili powder, salt and some water (a tbsp).Β  cook till done.Β  Squeeze out the water from the granules and add. Adjust salt and cook on low flame till it’s done. ( all gravy will dry up). Add the chopped coriander and take it off fire.

Spoon the granule mix into the eggplants and brush it with oil. Bake in the oven for approximately an hour(1600 C) or till cooked.

Garnish and serve it with plain rice. ( for garnish, I used, finely chopped onion, tomatoes and green chillies along with a sprig of fresh coriander)

Enjoy !!! πŸ™‚
