Baingan Bhartha

Baingan Bhartha is a famous North Indian dish which is prepared by roasting the brinjal in direct flame and cooking it with spices.I like this dish for its simplicity ,no grinding of masalas etc.. still a tasteful dish to accompany your roti. I have followed Tarla dalal's recipe and made few changes to suit my taste.

Baingan Bhartha
  • Wash the brinjal and pat it dry. Apply little oil over it and roast in direct flame till the outer skin starts to peel off and the brinjal is cooked well from inside. Allow it to cool for some time. 
  • Remove the outer skin ,take the brinjal pulp,mash and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a pan,add cumin seeds followed by chopped ginger and garlic and fry for 1 min. Add the chopped onions and fry till onions turn light brown.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes,salt and cook for 2 mins till the tomato becomes mashy.
  • Add all the masala powders given in the ingredients list and fry them well till the raw smell of the powders goes off. If needed sprinkle some water to avoid the masala from being burnt.
  • Add the mashed brinjal ,add required water to get desired consistency of the gravy ,mix well and cook in slow flame till the masalas are blended well with the brinjal.
  • Garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve.
