Aubergine / Eggplant / Brinjal Sabzi (Baingain ka bharta )

Written By Surbhi Ahluwalia on Wednesday, December 28, 2011 | December 28, 2011




Baingan Bharta is an easy and common recipe amongst North Indian food.I made few changes to it ( like adding peanuts :) ) and it came out pretty good.Instead of roasting the eggplant , I've boiled it and added to the gravy it tastes different than the roasted eggplant bharta but still good.
In a pan add 1 tbsp of oil , once warm add cumin seeds, ginger , garlic and peanuts , saute it for 2 minutes.


Add Onion , Green chili and salt to this and let it cook it Onions become translucent.


Now add tomatoes to this mixture along with turmeric , red chili ,coriander powder  and garam masala , let it cook for about 5 mins.


Add Boiled Eggplant to this and mix it well, then add Coriander to the mixture.


Mix it well and let it cook for about 7-8 mins on a slow flame. Baingan Bharta is ready.
