Gutti Vankaya Dry / Stuffed Brinjal Dry
Brinjal/Vankaya is a vegetable many love and hate it, there’s no middle path 😊. Its been my favorite vegetable make anything from it would be first to devour it. Its called as Baingan in Hindi, aubergine in English, vankaya in Telugu, it called by many names in different regions.
Gutti Vankaya/Stuffed Brinjal is popular dish from Andhra Cuisine, its very delicious it can be cooked in dry and curry version. This is dry version without curry/gravy. We can say this is signature dish of Andhra Cuisine, one kept craving for more and more. Have always loved when my mom makes this dish this recipe is from my mom recipe trove 😊 which I am going to share it below…!
Normally to make this recipe we use a lot of oil tried using less oil to make it healthy. This is very similar to the brinjal curry i.e. enne badnakei, which is made in North Karnataka. The only difference is that in enne badnakei they use sesame seeds which we do not use in Gutti Vankaya Dry recipe.
