    • Round Or Oval Shaped Small Brinjals – 650gms  
    • Oil To Deep Fry 
    • Onion – 1  
    • Ginger – 3/4” Piece  
    • Green Chilies – 20(Or To Taste)  
    • Coriander – 3/4 Bunch  
    • Cumin Seeds – 2tsps  
    • Turmeric Powder – 1/4 tsp 
    • Salt To Taste 
    • Soya Granules – 1/2 Cup

    (Online Conversion utility to convert Gms to Cups & Temperatures etc)


    Wash brinjals and keep aside. Take a bowl of water and add little salt to it and mix. Cut brinjals when exposed to air becomes black and get a bitter taste. To avoid this we place the cut brinjals in salted water till use. Now take a brinjal and remove the stem. Slit length wise to 3/4th height. Now turn the brinjal and make a slit to 3/4th height in the opposite direction to the first slit you have made. Now you can see that there are 2 slits on the two sides with the brinjal intact. Similarly slit all the brinjals and dip them in the salt water and keep aside. Take soya granules in a bowl and add water to soak them. Clean and chop the coriander. Similarly chop finely the onion. Now you can see that the soya granules have absorbed water and have swollen a bit. So remove water from the soya granules by pressing. By doing this we are softening the soya granules so that they get mixed nicely when we make the paste.


    Now let us prepare the stuffing. Take a mixie jar and add ginger, green chilies, chopped onions, chopped coriander, pressed soya granules, salt, turmeric powder and cumin seeds. Grind this to a paste. Do not add water while grinding. The paste will be a coarse paste. Take this into a bowl and keep aside. 


    Heat a pan and add oil to it. The oil should be really hot. Drain the brinjals from salt water to a perforated bowl to drain excess water. Take a dry cloth and pat them dry. When the oil is hot add the brinjals to the hot oil and fry for 30 Seconds. We have to fry them for just 30 seconds only. By doing this we are ensuring that each brinjal is cooked evenly. Due to heat of the oil the brinjals get cooked up to 90%. The remaining gets cooked when we cook in microwave. Because we are removing it after just 30 seconds, the brinjals will not absorb any oil. Keep them aside to cool a bit. Now stuff the brinjals with the prepared paste. Arrange them in a microwave safe bowl. Do not put the brinjals one above the other. You can cook the remaining brinjals in a second batch. So arrange the brinjals in a flat microwave safe dish side by side. There is no need to add any oil as we have already fried them in oil. If required spray some water on these brinjals. Now cover the bowl with a cling film. Take a knife or a scissor and prick on the cling film at two three places to allow steam to escape while cooking. Now put this bowl in microwave.Cook the brinjals on high power for 5 minutes, then on low power for 5 more minutes. Allow standing time of 5 minutes and take them out. Tasty Gutti Vankayalu will be ready. Serve them hot. 

    Enjoy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Jaya Garu,

    Thanks for your feedback, Soya Granules just add to the body of the filling. You can exclude the Soya and still prepare the recipe as shown.

    Krishanveni Garu,

    I have used soya granules to add body to the stuffing. In traditional method we do it without soya granules. You can try the recipe omitting the soya granules.

    As regards adding groundnut or other alternatives, I haven't tried, but is not a bad idea.

    Devi Garu,

    Thanks for your feedback on Tamarind rice.
    You can use any color vankayalu for Guttivankaya koora.
    If you don't have a microwave oven, prepare the recipe using a frying pan on gas stove. While frying cover the pan and cook. Often stir the brinjals while frying.

    I would like to share with you our views about your videos on cooking, this is really a different way of presenting than any other videos. I really liked it.

    Secondly your voice is very clear & understandable language, your communication is so sweet to understand by anyone, I am basically Kannadiga (karnataka) presently in Dubai.

    I tried your recipes it came out very well, hope you will continue to post your recipes in future and I enjoy by taking your tips & preparing dish.

    But one suggestion, you very often use Microwave to do some items, may be it is my perception to avoid or suggest alternative mode of making the same, so that it may be impressive to the people who doesn't have microwave. Since in India it is very difficult to have power 24 hours or less voltage to run microwave.

    Over all your cooking tips & recipes are giving me enthusiasm to learn more & try for different taste of recipes, thank you.

    In the end I take this opportunity to wish you "HAPPY NEW YEAR 2009"

    Thanks for your comments.

    I am hosting what I am actually preparing at home in my day to day life. I use micro-wave extensively as a part of my Life Style Change which is necessitated because my husband is diabetic. I want to reduce to the extent possible using oil while preparing recipes. Hence, I sizzle (cook) the vegetables in micro-wave and season them in less oil on a gas stove.

    If I try to show something which I don't practice at home, probably I wouldn't have the satisfaction of being truthful and the viewers wouldn't appreciate my efforts too.

    Gayatri Garu,

    Gutti Vankaya Koora adirindi andi.. Was helping my wife to search for a recipe on the Internet and came across your video on youtube. A simple thing like how to cut the Vankaya itself is a revelation.

    Was reading thru your note on "why you want to post your video narration in telugu" .. Mee abhiprayala tho eekibavistunnanu.. "jagamanta Kutumbam Naadi" anna mee philosphy is too kewl... btw for me, writing in english is more of convenience factor.

    Thanks and a have a great time.. Favouriting your site.
