Tel-Vang [ oil-eggplant]


About 12 small eggplants / brinjal

10-12 cloves garlic peeled

4-5 green Serrano / Indian chilies

3 Tbs oil

½ tsp mustard seeds

7-8 fenugreek seeds [methi seeds]

½ tsp turmeric powder

Salt to taste

Method: Wash eggplants and make slits keeping the stem intact. Take a small mixer jar and add green chilies, grind, now add garlic and salt and grind further to make a coarse paste. Stuff this paste into eggplants using a dinner knife. Now add oil to a nonstick pan heat on medium heat, add mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds let it splutter and add turmeric now add all stuffed brinjals . Cover and cook them on low heat, stir in between until they cook properly. Now remove the cover and sauté them on high heat for a few minutes to dry out any water. This is called Tel-Vang in Marathi Tel means oil, so if you are comfortable with adding more oil, it will taste better. This can be enjoyed with Bhakri.

Note: You can use less of more chili- garlic paste according to your taste.
