Ennai Kathirikai with roasted peanuts



Few years ago,I tasted an andhra side dish - ladies finger stuffed with peanuts masala...I cud still recall the taste now...I tried many recipes,but that cudnt match the taste..The best lesson after many disasters(it happened),roast the peanuts before grinding it...This recipe gives awesome taste to the Brinjals...



Ingredients
Brinjal-7-8 nos
Peanuts-1 cup
Onion,sliced-2
Coriander seeds-2 tbsp
Cumin-1 tbsp
Chilli powder-1 tsp
Coriander leaves,chopped-2 stems
Sesame/Olive Oil-1/3 cup


Method

1.Dry roast the peanuts until crunchy


2.Dry roast the cumin and coriander seeds in low flame until it turns slight brown
3.Cool the peanuts,coriander seeds,cumin and the onions and grind it coarsely or finely
4.Now add the salt and chilli powder and mix it


5.Slit the whole brinjal into four and stuff the paste into it


6.Heat the oil in a pan and add the remaining masala and brinjals ,saute a minute
7.Sprinkle 1/4 salt ,coriander over the brinjals and toss them
8.Close the lid and cook in the low flame


9.When brinjal turns tender enough,its ready to serve
