Baingan Ravaiya

Baigan or Ringan Ravaiya is basically stuffed baby eggplant. When I have small baby potatoes on hand, I stuff them as well and cook along with baby eggplants. Since my family love potato in it, I go ahead and add regular potato wedges sometimes. For variation, sometimes, I add fresh pigeon peas as well.
