Bharli Vangii/Stuffed Brinjals Recipe/How to make Bharli Vangi or Stuffed Brinjals

Bharli Vangi is an authentic Maharashtrian delicacy which is made by stuffing brinjals with groundnuts, coriander and spices filling. It’s one of my favorite dishes. Spicy, hot and delicious are the best adjectives to go with this dish.

There are various versions of this dish depending upon which region of Maharashtra where it is made. Some like it tangy and sweet while some like it hot and spicy.

For fun..some health benefits of Brinjal :)

The nutritious eggplant, also called brinjal or aubergine, hails from the nightshade family of fruits and vegetables that includes potatoes, peppers and tomatoes. Botanically, the brinjal is a fruit, not a vegetable and the brinjal plant grows just like tomatoes as vines. For its utility in the kitchen or rather, for cooking purposes, it is considered a vegetable. Just as other colourful veggies, this vegetable too has a host of health benefits.

It’s helpful to the heart, brain and keeps diabetes in control. It helps to create iron, facilitates weight loss, helps in digestion and has antibacterial properties. It’s considered to be good for skin.
