Bhaarli Vaangi

"Bhaarli" means stuffed and "vaangi" means eggplants in the Indian language of Marathi. Small eggplants, found usually in specialty Indian grocery stores are a great way to make this recipe. If the small eggplants are not available then use the usual eggplants. Eggplants are commonly known as "brinjals" in India. This recipe is eaten with freshly made "chappaties" and raw onion and a variety of pickles.
