Gutti Vankaya kura / Stuffed Brinjal Curry

It is a famous curry in combination with jonna rotti at my home. My dad loveees it. My mom have a cookbook called 'Vantalu Pindi Vantalu' by Malathi Chandur. One fine day when i am back to home early from college, i thought of suprising my mom by making a curry by the time she comes home from work. So, i read the book and decided to make Gutti vankaya curry. I made a huge quantity of it. By the time it was ready, my brothers friend Seena came visiting him. I asked these guys to taste my curry. They did and my brother gave me a funny look. And i instantly knew that it was the worst curry he ever tasted. Seena being very polite said that it was gud, not even a word other than that. By that time my mom came home and insisted Seena to stay for dinner and made some rotis for us. Me and brother acted immediatly by saying that we want to wait for our dad to come home so that we all can eat together. so, Seena ate 2 rotis with my curry. Me and my brother sat before him and had a good laugh and asked him to stop eating if he doesnt like it but he finished it. That is polite and very encouraging. Later that evening my mom made an other curry for dinner.

Next day i made an other curry(huge quantity) and we all had it for dinner. Later that night my parents told me that i dont have to surprise them by cooking, and also said that they will be happy to see me studying well. Thats how they made me stop cooking. Even now i dont know how i made those huge quantity of curries and why they tasted that bad. But now i can make tasty gutti vankaya curry. Its my mom's recipe. She cooks this curry in a pressure cooker but i cook without the cooker. Here is the recipe.


Brinjals 5


Roasted peanuts 3tbsp
Medium sized Onion 1
Medium sized Tomato 1
Coconut powder 2 tbsp
Corriander Powder 1 tbsp
Cumin Powder 1 tbsp
Tamarind Extract 2 tbsp
Red Chilli powder 1 tbsp
Sesame seeds 1 tbsp


Oil 1tsp
Mustard Seeds 1tbsp
Cumin Seeds 1 tbsp
Red chilli 1
Curry leaves few


1.Grind all the masala ingredients together into a paste. Add more salt or tamarind if needed.

2. Cut each brinjal from the base towards the stem but not all the way through. Make an other slit perpendicular to the first one. Stuff the masala and keep them aside.

3. Do the seasoning in a pan or a pressure cooker. Add the remaining masala. Close the lid by keeping the flame on low to avoid burning. In a few minutes oil separates from the masala then add stuffed brinjals. Add water. Gravy should not be too thin. Cook till the brinjals are well done on a medium flame by closing the lid. If you are cooking on a pressure cooker just cook till you get 1 whistle. Garnish with cilantro.
