Lets prepare the stuffing for the Brinjal. In a  kadai, roast Dry Red chillies,Groundnut and Onion in a teaspoon of oil. Then grind it into a Fine paste and then add salt. Don't add water for grinding this.

Meanwhile, slit the Brinjal into 4 (Do not separate them into pieces). Stuff the masala into the Brinjal.

Now,Heat the kadai with 3 Tablespoons of oil. Add mustard seeds and allow it to splutter. Then add Fenugreek seeds,curry leaves,Onion, Garlic and Saute. Then add tomatoes and cook well.Now add the stuffed Brinjal and cook it till the Brinjal is 80% done.

Now add the turmeric and Chilli powder and cook till the raw flavour is gone. Then add the Tamarind juice and cook till the Brinjal is done and raw flavour of Tamarind is gone. To this add the coconut paste and cook for 30 seconds.
