Masala Gutti Vankaya with Graffiti Eggplant

Today at Taj Groceries these Graffiti Eggplants caught my eye. I have never tried these before, so I picked around dozen tender eggplants and got home. And the next thing happened is this simple Masala Gutti Vankaya in my kitchen! This recipe is totally made up by me and done in pressure cooker, saves tons of time as this is shortcut to Gutti Vankaya curry which is usually a lengthy process to make. Here is the recipe, Njoy!

Graffiti Eggplant - 10
Cumin Seeds - 1 tsp
Onion - 1
Tomato - 1
Green Chili - 2
Ginger Garlic Paste - 1 Tbsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Garam Masala Powder - 1/2 tsp
Oil - 2 Tbsp
Cilantro - 1 Tbsp

Spice Powder:
Red Chili Powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander Powder - 1/2 tsp
Rice Flour - 2 Tbsp

Preparatory Steps:
  1. Mix all the ingredients under Spice Powder section in a small bowl and keep it dry.
  2. Wash Eggplants and remove the stem.  Make a slit into 4 slices but they need to be intact at the top. 
  3. Rub Eggplants with 1 Tbsp of Oil and dust with spice powder mixture all around. 
  4. Sauté Eggplants in the non-stick pan for 10 min, turning all over so that the eggplants gets soft with out changing their color .

  1. Take non-stick pressure cooker and add remaining 1 Tbsp Oil to it. Once the oil is hot add cumin seeds, as they splutter add Ginger Garlic Paste. 
  2. Add green chili, chopped onions to the pan and mix them well with ginger garlic paste. Close the lid and let the onion mixture cook on low heat for 5 min. 
  3. Now add Tomato pieces to the onion mixture and let them simmer for 10 min ( until tomato pieces are mashed up). Add 1 tsp of salt to the tomato onion mixture and mix it well. 
  4. Now add the sautéed spiced egg plants to the pan. Add any remaining spice powder mix to the pan. Mix Eggplants with Tomato & onion mixture.  Add garam masala powder to it.
  5. Close the lid tight and cook on pressure for 2 whistles and switch off the stove. 
  6. After 15 min, Take the weight off and remove the lid. Don't mix it up Eggplants will be tender. Taste and adjust the seasonings, add cilantro to gravy. Switch off the stove.
  7. Transfer the curry to serving bowl carefully and serve with Hot White Rice immediately.
