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.
|GREEN CHILLI||2 NO|
|CORIANDER POWDER||1/2 TSP|
|CHILLI POWDER||1/4 TSP|
|GARAM MASALA POWDER||1/4 TSP|
