This is the most simplest version of 'Stuffed' recipe & can be prepared in a hurry. I generally go for this one, when there is no time in hand for blending & grinding but still want to enjoy something rich, spicier, other than regular stir fries! If you have some finley crushed groundnuts at hand...that's it then! You are all set for the preparation!

2 purple brinjals, washed, make a slit at the top for stuffing
