Stuffed Brinjal Curry Version Two.
Stuffed Brinjal Curry is a popular brinjal curry in India and there are many versions of it.
One of my favourite is Andra style because it’s super spicy, taste awesome and exotic. I already shared one version of Andra style recipe in my blog and this is the second version with different ingredients.
