Stuffed Ennai Kathirikaai / Stuffed Eggplant Fry

Ennai Kathirikaai is one of our family's favorite recipe..I wanted to post it for long time, but wasn't able to find good mini size eggplants...These mini brinjals are soo tasty by itself, that too in this ennai kathirikaai it's soo awesome..It's a very aromatic and tasty side dish for rice..Many don't add coconut in this recipe, but coconut make it's still more tasty..but don't add too much..Also shallots/ small onion will give more taste..but I used big onion, since I didn't had at hand...Do try this drool worthy recipe and you will like it for sure...
