Eggplant bharta - Baigan bharta(hindi) is vangyache bharit
in Marathi. It is made from
roasted eggplant (also called as brinjal, baigan(hindi), vangi(marathi),
I like eggplants / brinjals but I do not like to eat eggplant skins. I like this way of cooking eggplant because I do not have to eat the skins. If you are like me, this is a perfect recipe for people like us.
This is a easy eggplant recipe and it is served with breads like chapati, roti, nan, bhakri (jowar or bajra roti).
It also goes very well with plain steamed rice.
Go to North Indian Baigan ka Bharta if you are looking for that recipe. You will find two Baigan ka bharta recipes.
1. Baigan bharta with curd(yogurt) - scroll to find below.
2. Go to Baingan bharta with tamarind and jaggery
I am sure you will like both the variations. For both the recipes we use roasted eggplant
Find here how to roast eggplant on the stove top.
After the eggplant is roasted, remove carefully the blackened skin from the roasted eggplant and mash the flesh with a potato masher or with a fork.
Use this mashed eggplant
for making the baigan bharta.
This is my mother's recipe.
