Stuffed Brinjal Masala Tamil Nadu Style | Stuffed Kathirikkai Masala

Stuffed Brinjal Curry is one of the most common and delectable South Indian curry varieties. This recipe has many adaptations, including the popular Andhra style Gutti vankaya kura, Mangalore style stuffed Brinjal, Kerala style stuffed Brinjal, and so on. I've included a recipe for stuffed Brinjal Curry in Tamil Nadu style which is completely different from regular stuffed brinjal curries. This is an heirloom dish from my family and one of my favourites.
For this recipe we prepare a very spicy masala made with ingredients like whole garam masala spices,
onion,tomato,ginger,garlic ,spice powders like red chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder and grated coconut.The brinjals are then stuffed with the masala and roasted or cooked. You can adjust the consistency of the curry to suit your tastes, such as making it gravy, semi-gravy, or a dry curry by adjusting the water quantity.
This stuffed brinjal curry pairs well with plain rice drizzled with ghee, chapati, jeera pulao, dosa, and other Indian dishes.
Below is a recipe for a delicious spicy Tamil Nadu style stuffed Brinjal Curry.
