  • Now place another pan on the stove add 2 to 3 tbsp oil to it and place all the stuffed brinjals and chopped onions in to it.
  • Cook it in a low flame with covering the pan with a lid.If u want it more soft add half cup of water.
  • If the curry is cooked with a lid on the water vapour is enough to cook the curry itself.
  • Lastly after the curry is cooked n turned soft add tamarind paste and mix it, now  let it cook for 2 to 3 min more.
