Gutti Vankaya Kura did take some time to cook this beautiful dish, but I thought the end result was worth the effort. Gutti Vankaya Kura is an Andhra styled traditional vegetable curry. It is a Telangana specialty of making peanut stuffed eggplants cooked in a spicy gravy base. This dish can be made using small purple brinjals as well as small round green eggplants. Roasted peanuts, sesame seeds, coconut and onions are ground and stuffed in the eggplants and cooked on a low flame. Peanuts and sesame seeds lend that unique flavor and taste to the brinjal. Gutti Vankaya is a gravy based savory dish which is mostly served with white rice, roti and even biryani. The preparation of masala and stuffing the brinjals might take some time but the rest of the process is quite easy. These hot, slightly tangy and nutty tasting brinjals go great wit plain rice and ghee.
