Bharli Vangi: A Maharashtrian Stuffed Eggplant Preparation

1.

Welcome to the world of Maharashtrian cuisine! Today, we'll be exploring the delicious and flavorful dish of Bharli Vangi, a stuffed eggplant preparation.

2.

First, let's gather our ingredients. You'll need eggplants, onions, tomatoes, ginger, garlic, spices like turmeric, coriander, and cumin, and of course, some oil for cooking.

3.

Start by making a paste of onions, tomatoes, ginger, and garlic. This will be the base of our dish and will give it a rich and tangy flavor.

4.

Next, slit the eggplants and stuff them with the paste. Make sure to coat the eggplants well with the paste, as this is where most of the flavor will come from.

5.

In a pan, heat some oil and add in the stuffed eggplants. Let them cook for a few minutes on each side until they are slightly browned.

6.

Now, it's time to add in the spices. Sprinkle some turmeric, coriander, and cumin over the eggplants and mix well. Let it cook for a few more minutes.

7.

As the eggplants cook, they will absorb all the flavors from the spices and the paste. This will give them a delicious and aromatic taste.

8.

Once the eggplants are cooked, add in some water and let it simmer for a few minutes. This will help to soften the eggplants and create a thick and flavorful gravy.

Your Bharli Vangi is now ready to be served! Garnish with some fresh coriander leaves and enjoy this traditional Maharashtrian dish with some hot rotis or rice.
