Wash and wipe the brinjals and slit length wise from the base towards the stalk, just short of the stalk, dividing first into half.
Then make another slit dividing each into quarters, thus making space to fill the masala.
Mix together the filling ingredients and stuff the masala firmly into the brinjals.
Heat the oil in a pan till it gives off a strong aroma.
Add the brinjals and turn around a few times on high heat.
Reduce heat, cover and cook till tender, stirring a few times.
Serve hot, garnished with sliced ginger.
