Heat the remaining oil in a broad vessel. Add chopped onions and fry on a low flame till light brown in colour. Add the peanuts and salt and fry for 2 mintues. Arrange the stuffed brinjals and potatoes on the onion-peanut mixture in a single layer. Cover the pan. Pour 1/2 cup water on the lid and cook on a low flame for about 20 minutes or until the vegetables are ready. Stir very carefully occasionally, pouring a little water from the lid onto the vegetables each time.

Serve hot with chappatis.
