Hyderabadi Bagara Baingan / Stuffed Eggplants in a Nutty Masala Sauce (akshayapaatram) -- a bit of work preparing the pastes, stuffing the eggplants and frying them. Super rich but rewarding on the palate :)
Vankaya Gasagasala Kura – Eggplant Poppy Seeds Curry
Vankaya Gasagasala Kura / Eggplant Poppy Seeds Curry -- looks so decadent yet prep is relatively simple. Besides the spices, this uses poppy seeds for the gravy. Subbing with tahini/cashew nuts since I can't get poppy seeds. Also thinking of roasting the eggplant slices instead of frying them for a heart healthy version.
