BAINGAN BHARTA/SIDE DISH FOR ROTI

This recipe very rarely takes place in my kitchen ,since my kids dont like brinjal , but thankfully my husband who is not a great lover of brinjals,(i know most of the guys are like this)like this bharta.

This recipe doesnt involve in grinding anything, but only time consuming thing is roasting of the brinjal, takes half an hour. I did the roasting on the stove top, but i think an oven can do this quickly.

METHOD:

  • Wash the eggplant and wipe it well without any moisture.
  • Apply oil on the surface of the eggplant, for this u need few drops of oil.
  • With a knife, put a slit the eggplant and insert garlic into this.
  • Do this in 2 sides. This will give a nice smoky garlic flavour.

  • Roast this on a low  flame and turn it inbetween to get it evenly roasted and get cooked inside also.

  • Before serving add coriander leaves and a handful of raw onions(which we kept aside while chopping)
  • The crunchiness of onion in the gravy enhances the taste.

    1. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees C. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease.
      Turn the eggplants in between.
      Roast in the preheated oven until softened and golden brown, Personally i have not tried, but read in few books
