Almost in every house in Andhra, will have there own way of making Gutti Vankaya recipe and the stuffing may vary, but this recipe is everyone's favorite. We can find this curry in almost all functions and marriages in Andhra State. I already posted one version of gutti vankaya curry. In that version, I simply stuffed egg plant with onion mixture.
