Baingan Ka Bharta Recipe


Baingan Ka bharta- Popular Indian vegetarian dish which is prepared with roasted brinjal/eggplant (Baingan). Brinjal here has been roasted on a gas burner, minced after removal of its skin and further cooked with onion,tomato, ginger, garlic, chillies and Indian spices.

You can serve it with any dal and phulka/paratha. My favorite combination is Baingan ka Bharta with Urad Chana Dal and phulka, just like my mom used to make.
