Stuffed eggplant is the most liked recipe by Indians. No matter how weird the faces we make at the name of brinjal but when Stuffed eggplant is prepared we forget all about our not-so-good relationship with brinjal. The recipe is very healthy and vegan as well. The recipe will be so tasty that you will definitely eat one extra roti. Let’s start with the ingredients first:

Ingredients 

  • Coriander powder – 1 teaspoon 
  • Fennel powder – 1 teaspoon 
  • Ginger – ½ teaspoon (grated)
  • Cayenne pepper – ½ teaspoon 
  • Green chilly – 1 (chopped)
  • Rock salt – 1 teaspoon 
  • Turmeric powder – ¼ teaspoon 
  • Mango powder – ½ teaspoon 
  • Eggplant – 1
  • Cold-pressed coconut oil – ½ teaspoon
  • Cumin – 1 teaspoon (powdered)
  • Asafoetida – ¼ teaspoon 
  • Coriander leaves- ½ cup

Instructions 

  • First, we need to make masala to fill in the eggplant. To make masala take a bowl and add one teaspoon of coriander powder, one teaspoon of fennel powder, Ginger- ½ teaspoon (grated), Cayenne pepper- ½ teaspoon (powder), Green chilly- 1 (chopped), Rock salt- 1 teaspoon, Turmeric – ¼ teaspoon (powder), Mango powder- ½ teaspoon. Make sure you mix everything perfectly; otherwise  it will be messed up.
  • Take a big eggplant, wash it and make two cuts that are diagonal to each other. The cuts should not be intense and must divide the eggplant into four pieces. The eggplant must remain stuck from the bottom. You can take as many eggplants as required. 
  • Rub the masala in between the cuts in a proper manner. 
  • Now heat an iron cast pan. Take a nonstick pan; otherwise, it will stick to the bottom.
  • Add ½ teaspoon cold pressed coconut oil to the pan. Heat it for a good time and add cumin- 1 teaspoon (powder), Asafoetida – ¼ teaspoon, along with the eggplants.
  • Cook the eggplant from each side for five minutes. In case it burns, add some drops of cold-pressed coconut oil to it. Make sure it is just a few drops.
  • You can add the leftover masala in the end and cook for 2-3 minutes again.
  • Add ½ cup of coriander leaves to the masala eggplant.
  • Serve your hot masala eggplant with roti or rice.
  • Bon appetit! 

Benefits 

Eggplant 

Antioxidants included in eggplant, such as vitamins A and C, aid in preventing cell deterioration. Additionally, it has a lot of polyphenols, which are organic plant molecules. If you have diabetes, these chemicals may improve how well your cells process sugar.

Eggplant is a nutrient-rich, low-calorie meal with a high fibre content with many possible health advantages. Eggplants are an easy and delicious complement to any healthful eating, helping with everything from controlling blood sugar and weight loss to lowering the risk of heart disease.

Mango powder 

Mangoes include phenols, which lower acidity, aid in the digestion, and improve bowel movements. Most pregnant women experience three common ailments—indigestion, acidity, and constipation—all  can be treated with amchur powder.

Enhances metabolism: Amchur, an antioxidant, boosts metabolism, while dried mango powder is low in carbohydrates. Both of these qualities have a positive impact on weight loss. It supports the body’s detoxification process since dry mango powder is rich in iron, and vitamins A, C, D, and B6.

Green coriander leaves 

The plant is a diuretic, which can help remove surplus sodium from your system to reduce your blood pressure. Coriander may also help lower “bad” LDL cholesterol, which lowers your risk of atherosclerosis, a kind of coronary heart disease. This is according to a preliminary study.

In addition, consuming fresh coriander leaves on a daily basis may promote bone health, lower high cholesterol, soothe skin, ease digestion, and boost immunity.

Asafoetida  

Asafoetida is used to treat stomach problems and helps those who have gas, bloating, acid reflux, constipation, and other stomach health issues.

Moreover, it is a digestive stimulant and aids in bowel movement regulation due to its high dietary fiber content. It boosts liver functioning to secrete more bile salts and raises stomach acid production.
