05/22/2012: Brinjal (Eggplant) Gravy Curry with Sesame - Coming from the state of Andhra in India, it is so embarassing that I fail to make the Stuffed Brinjal Curry (Gutti Vankaya Curry) as it is usually supposed to be made. No matter how may times I try, I tend to break the Brinjals when I try to put the stuffing in. And even if I manage to get the Brinjals stuffed well, they seem to split while shallow-frying them. So, instead of making them stuffed, I use the same recipe to just make it as a regular gravy curry. Added to that being allergic to Peanuts I substitute it with Sesame Seeds. Oh Well, A Rose by any other name would smell as sweet! **evil grin**

Sounds very tasty, and I'd go with the sesame, too. I have brinjal in the fridge now, and will probably make this...
