Stuffed Eggplant Bonda - Gutti Vankaya Bhajji

Another tea time snack recipe like Aloo Bonda this time it's with stuffed eggplant. Stuffed brinjal/eggplant curry aka Gutti Vankaya Koora is a famous Andhra curry recipe prepared with eggplants stuffed with masala.
Instead of making curry with stuffed brinjals I've fried them with besan batter which resulted as a mouthwatering tea time snack.  It's really tasty and worth for a try.


Eggplant (small size) : As required
Onion : 2 (cut into small pieces)
Green Chillies : (Cut into small pieces)
Ginger garlic paste : 1 tea spoon
Garam masala powder : 1 tea spoon 
Oil for frying

For cover

Gram flour (Besan) : 1 cup
Salt : 1/2 tea spoon

Make a thick batter with besan (gram flour) by adding little water at a time, add salt mix well and keep aside.
Make 4 slits with a kitchen knife on each eggplant
Boil water in  a vessel and cook eggplants for 5 minutes, remove from water and set aside
For stuffing heat oil in a karahi/wok fry onion, green chilly pieces till onion turns light pink in color. add ginger garlic paste and fry for 2 more minutes. Add garam masala powder, salt as per taste mix well and fry on slow flame for 3 minutes and set aside.
Now stuff the above mixture into each boiled eggplant.
Heat enough oil for deep frying in a karahi/wok.
Dip each stuffed eggplant in gram flour (besan) batter and gently drop into the karahi/wok
Fry on slow flame till bondas turn into golden yellow color.
Serve hot with chutney or sauce along with tea.
