Baingan Bharta

This is a classical Indian dish made with eggplant and a mild blend of spices..This dish is made in several ways.I got this recipe from Swati's blog..It tasted too good with chapathis.It also goes along well with rice,rotis and naan..


Eggplant/Brinjal - 2 medium sized ones
Onion - 1 big chopped
Green chillies - 3
Tomatoes - 3 chopped
Chilli powder - 1 teaspoon
Coriander powder - 1 teaspoon
Cumin powder - 1 teaspoon
Garam masala - 1 teaspoon
Cumin seeds - 1 teaspoon
Oil - 2 spoons
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves to garnish


Grease the brinjals and broil them in an oven until the skin browns and the inner flesh gets cooked.Alternatively, grease the brinjals with oil and hold it directly over the burner.Keep rotationg the brinjal with the help of tongs..This takes a while for the brinjals to cook well.

Cool completely and peel the brinjals.Chop the brinjal into small pieces or mash them roughly with your hands.

In a skillet, heat some oil and add the cumin seeds.Once they splutter add the slit green chillies and onions and cook till the onions turn tranlucent.Add all the powder and cook for two minutes..

Then add the chopped tomatoes and cook till it turns mushy and the oil comes out on the sides.This takes about 3 to 4 minutes.Finally add the chopped brinjal.Cover and cook for about two minutes..Simmer for 3 minutes..

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot!

  11. generally yogurt is added to bharta, urs is a different version from the boring usual bharta.. will try this next time.
