Baingan Bharta recipe is a delicious recipe made with fire-roasted large aubergines and seasoned with onions, tomatoes, chillies and spices. It is finger-licking delicious.
Make gashes on brinjal. Add some garlic cloves. Roast the brinjal on fire till they are charred on the outside and well cooked on the inside.
Let them cool and then peel off the burnt skin. Finely chop or mash the pulp with the garlic and keep aside.
Now take mustard oil in a pan. Put in cumin seeds and allow them to sputter.
Add onions and ginger-garlic-chilly chopped. Cook for a few minutes till onions are transparent and slightly golden.
Now add the tomatoes and cook some more till they have released their water.
Add in the brinjal pulp and all the masalas including salt. Mix well.
Cover and cook for about 5 minutes till everything seems well integrated. Taste and adjust seasoning.
Garnish with coriander leaves. Your baingan ka bharta is ready. Serve hot.
