  • Add finely chopped onions and saute for a minute.
  • Slowly drop the stuffed eggplants one by one into the pan(Let the gas flame be in Sim)
  •  Flip the eggplants once in a while, so that they are cooked on all sides;Saute regularly and continue to cook covered, until the eggplants are done
  •  Add the gravy and mix well  .Cover the saucepan and let the masala settle well with the eggplants.
  • Add little water if you feel the mixture is dry.Saute for 8-10 mins and now the ennegayi is ready!
