Baingan Bartha



Baingan bartha is a North Indian dish made by roasting brinjal on direct heat and cooking it's flesh with onions, tomatoes and spices to give a smoky flavor. Give it a try even if you are not a brinjal fan and thank me for the recipe ;)

Serves:2

Ingredients:
Brinjals-2 medium
Onion chopped-1 small
Tomatoes chopped-2 small
Green chilli-1
Ginger chopped-1 tsp
Garlic chopped-2 pods
 Jeera-1 tsp
Oil-1 tbsp
Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
Chilli powder-as required
Coriander leaves-to garnish

Method:
Rub oil all over the brinjals. Roast one by one on direct flame  till the skin turns black and brittle. It takes about 15 minutes on medium flame. Turn it regularly so that it cooks evenly. Set aside and cool.
Heat oil in a pan. Add jeera, ginger, garlic, green chilli, onions and fry till onions turn golden brown.
Add salt, turmeric powder, chilli powder and tomatoes. Cook till tomatoes turn soft.
Peel the skin of roasted brinjals and add the flesh to the veggies. Mash well with a ladle. Cook for a couple of minutes.
Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with rotis/pooris
