Dear Adriano et al, 

For upākhyānas and other secondary narratives embedded in the MBH, the best source I know is the doctoral dissertation of Barbara Gombach (Columbia, 2000) titled “Ancillary Stories in the Sanskrit Mahābhārata” and I see that it has been made available on archive.org: https://archive.org/details/AncillaryStoriesInTheSanskritMahabharataBarbaraGombach

For a cursory list of what he calls “subtales” in the two epics, see Alf Hiltebeitel’s “Not without Subtales: Telling Laws and Truths in the Sanskrit Epics,” JIPhil 33 (2005): 455-511, and available through springer here: 

With best wishes,
