    1. 1
      Wash and slit eggplants into quarters without slicing all the way through (see picture). Keep soaked in water for 30 mins while you prepare the masala.
    2. 2
      Dry roast peanuts and sesame seeds. Keep aside.
    3. 3
      Dry masala: In a tbsp of oil, roast channa dal, urad dal, red chillies, corriander seeds if using (instead of powder), mustard, cumin and curry leaves until the dals turn slightly brown.
    4. 4
      Grind together the above roasted dry masala along with grated coconut, tamarind paste, turmeric powder, jaggery, hing, salt and 2 chopped onions. Add corriander powder if using (instead of seeds). Add as much water as needed to get a semi solid paste (about 1/4 cup water). The ground masala should not be watery.
    5. 5
      Mix the remaining chopped onions to the ground masala.
    6. 6
      Stuff this masala into the slit eggplants.
    7. 7
      In a skillet / wok / karahi, heat oil and place stuffed eggplants in one level.

    9. 9
