Individually dry roast the cumin seeds, desiccated coconut, sesame seeds separately with garlic.
Now take all these roasted ingredients cumin seeds, desiccated coconut, sesame seeds, garlic and add roasted peanuts, and fennel seeds. Put these ingredients in a blender and blend them coarsely.
Transfer this paste in a separate bowl and add coriander powder, ginger paste, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, dry mango powder and finely chopped green chillies. Also add garam masala and salt. Give this paste a good mix.
Separately, quarter slit eggplant tops, without dissecting the stem leaving the vegetable intact and fill these eggplants with a generous amount of the paste we made earlier.
Heat Sunny Sun Lite Oil in a Pan/ wok. Now add cumin seeds and asafoetida and let them crackle and then add stuffed eggplants to it and fry them side by side letting them cook for 2-3minutes. Add balanced masala on top.
Cover it and cook on slow flame for 10 – 20 minutes stirring regularly, frying evenly on all sides. Add water and cook for 7-8 minutes until oil floats on top. Your piping hot Bharli Vangani is ready to be served!
