1/4 cup of sesame oil
1/2tsp of mustard seeds

Preparation Methods:

Split the eggplant halfway with a knife and shallow fry til they become half tender. In a frying pan ,saute masala ingredients in 2 tsp. oil for 5 minutes. Once the mixture is cooled, grind into a powder. Mix the powdered masala with 1 tbsp of tamarind and make it into a paste. Stuff the paste equally into the slit of each eggplant piece.

In a skillet over medium heat, heat the rest of the oil. Saute mustard seeds, cumin seeds,urad dhal . onions and curry leaves. When urad dhal turns into golden color, add the eggplants. Turn the eggplants very slowly so that the stuffing will not come out. When the eggplant is half cooked add the rest of the tamarind paste and turmeric. Let the mixture come to a full boil. When the eggplants are completely cooked, remove from hot and serve it hot with rice.
