Hi MT,

That whole plate looks lovely and brinjals, yum, my favorite! If it were not raining ice outside I would have to get to the store right now. It's a different stuffing than I have seen yet, too. Will certainly be trying this!

I could finally make stuffed kathirakkai 'with the stuffing actually inside the brinjals'. The tip on steaming is extremely useful. Thanks MT!
