Stuffed brinjal In Microwave

 Recently my aunt brought this to our house. Though I am not a great fan of brinjal, the look of the dish tempted me to taste it and it was so delicious. So called her up this morning for the recipe and when she said that it was cooked in a microwave, I was happy as well as surprised. So here is the recipe stuffed brinjal by my aunt Lakshmi.
