Vankaya Ullikaram(Brinjal stuffed with onion paste)

Brinjal,known as king of vegetables is liked by everyone and is  very versatile vegetable and can be cooked with a variety of  other vegetables and .This is one of my favorites and my mom’s recipe.



  1. Purple brinjals – 10
  2. Onions – 2(large)
  3. Red chillies – 3
  4. Corinader seeds – 2tsp
  5. Cumin seeds – 2tsp
  6. Oil – 3 to 4tsp

For stuffing:

  1. Chop onions into small pieces and grind the onions along with coriander,cumin and red chillies into a smooth paste.
  2. Add salt to the onion paste and mix well.


  • Wash and slit each brinjal into four sections length wise without cutting off the crown.
  • Now stuff all the brinjals with Onion paste.

  • Heat oil in pan and slowly place all the stuffed brinjals in the pan.
  • Sprinkle few drops of water on the brinjals and cover them with a lid and cook on low flame.
  • Stir occasionally gently till the brinjals are cooked and soft .
  • Remove the lid and cook for few minutes till the (extra) water evaporates.
