Kundalini Yoga for Temecula, Murrieta, and Lake Elsinore

Stuffed Brinjals (small round green eggplants)

I found this recipe on the internet while I was on the Green Diet one day and cannot remember the source. I changed it for the Green Diet so that you need to use the small green eggplants also known at Brinjals. You can find them in larger Indian Grocery or Chinese markets.




Brinjals(Vazhuthananga) - 10 nos
(small round shaped)
Red onions - 2 nos
Green chillies - 4 nos
Cumin seeds(Jeerakam) - 2 tsp
Coriander seeds - 2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 10 tsp
Coriander leaves for garnishing


Preparation Method


1)Grind together onion, green chillies and salt and keep aside.

2)Roast cumin seeds and coriander seeds and grind it to a powder.

3)Add the powder to the ground mixture and mix well.

4)Cut the brinjals into four, but not completely (cut slightly into the sides of the eggplant so you can stuff the mixture into the sliced area) It should be in such a way that you should be able to fill in the puree into the brinjals.

5)Fill the brinjals with the above mixture and keep aside.

6)Heat oil in a pan.

7)Add the brinjals and turmeric powder.

8)Cover and cook, till done.

9)Remove from flame.

10)Garnish with coriander leaves, if desired.


On The Green Diet you can serve this with a salad and for more protein, some Golden Yogurt at the Healthy Net website . Otherwise serve hot with rotis, rice.
