Baingan Ka Barta


This is a much awaited recipe that I have been thinking for a very long time and lastly got the time and mood to prepare this.



Baingan Ka Barta is a Punjabi side dish for rotis/naans and rice which is prepared by smoky roasted or char-grilled eggplants deskinned and cooked in onion, tomato, and mix of spices. And this is one of the divines of brinjal recipes for sure we all will be fond of this dish. This is one of the tasty and simple curry which can be made easily during special occasions/parties.


Ingredients:

Eggplants medium – 6 no or 1 Big Eggplant
Onion – 1 no Big

Tomato – 1 no Big
Garlic pods mashed – 4 no


Garam Masala Powder – 1tsp

Coriander leaves for garnishing

Preparation

  • Preheat oven to 500 degress.
  • Grease the baking pan and birnjals with little oil and bake for 20-25 minutes.

  • Once done, Cool it and peel off the eggplant skin.
  • Mash the flesh and keep aside.
  • Heat oil in a cooking vessel. Add garlic pods.
  • After garlic turns light brown add jeera after they splutter add chopped onions, green chillies and fry them on medium heat until onion turns soft.

  4. wonderful, there was a time when i hated baingan bharta till i had tasted this version. since then i do make same. just one thing i do as i dont have oven yet. i rub oil all over the egg plant and prick it with fork all around. then roast it on tava as it drops lots of water and well then only tawa gets dirty. pricking with fork makes it easy to remove skin later.

    my mom place they used to roast direct on gas but with juices coming out we stuck to roasting on tawa.
