Bharli Vangi

My today recipe is from Maharashtra. I wanted to try a thali from Maharashtra cuisine first recipe I got in mind is Bharli Vangi. We too make stuffed brinjal recipes in Andhra cuisine but they are totally different then Maharashtrian recipes. Even Hyderabadi cuisine have a stuffed brinjal recipe but that is also little different then this. I directly landed in to Pradnya's blog for this delicious Bharli Vangi recipe. I just followed her recipe didn't change any step.

I search but in some recipes they used tomato in some they didn't!!!. Then what to do I pinged Archana for this she said no tomatoes. Finally I made a thali from Maharashtr cuisine...
In this Maharashtrian thali I served:
Plain rice,
Bharli Vangi,
Moong usal
Nachni bhakri
I am posting Bharli Vangi today will come back with other recipes soon
