Slightly cut brinjal, tomato, onions, potatos from top & stuff them with the masala paste, do same with green chilly & tindora(just cut them horizontally so as masala can be fill nicely in it).even separate papdi beans & fill masala & try to bind them again.
At this stage, all the vegetables are stuffed now.
