Gutti Vankaya Kura is a Andhra traditional Special Curry usually made during weddings.In almost every vegetarian marriage functions this Gutti Vankaya kura is a special dish in Andhra Pradesh. You can't imagine a marriage function without this curry in Andhra's Weddings!!This stuffed brinjal curry can be made with a variety of stuffings. Today I am posting my family favorite gutti vankaya kura with simple ingredients. To make this Gutti Vankaya kura all you need is fresh, young and tender purple small brinjals or purple round brinjals. I usually make this masala gutti vankaya kura with fresh and tender small purple ones. This dish tastes super good with hot steamed rice, pappupulusu and ghee. 

Gutti Vankaya Kura is not only for taste, it also helps in supporting health too.The fibre,potassium,vitamin B-6,Vitamin C in Brinjals helps in reducing the chance of heart strokes and cardiovascular diseases.The good amount of Vitamin C in brinjal works like an effective anti-viral and anti-bacterial source.Researches shown that Polyphenols in Brinjals function as antioxidant to prevent Cancer.
