Gutti Vankaya Kura | Stuffed Brinjal Curry ~ Andhra Style | Step By Step Recipe

Welcome! I am finally ready to write down the recipes. As Andharites settled in Chennai, at home we mostly end up making Andhra foods and I am going to share my most favorite Guthi Vankai or Nune Vankai. Since Daddy loves brinjals, Amma often makes brinjals in different dishes. I can always say that this is the best of all of them.
I have seen adaptations of this by Tamil friends who call it Ennai Kathrikai. But nothing beats my Mom’s recipe. Hope you also enjoy as I have always.
Selecting the right variety of Brinjal is a must for this dish. The small really violet ones are best suitable.
Here you go for the things that make this wonderful dish.
