Priyanka Naik's Baby Eggplants in Peanut-Basil Sauce
Eat More Plants
This recipe was inspired by a very traditional Indian dish and my travel experiences. You’ll find a variation of Badanekai Tumbida, or stuffed eggplant, in a lot of Indian households (including mine), mainly from Maharashtra and South India. The stuffing is generally a mix of sautéed onions, garlic, peanuts, and a lot of different spices. You make an x-shaped cut in the rounded end of the eggplant, stuff it, then flash sear the eggplants in a hot pan.
