Baingan Bharta Recipe / Baingan ka Bharta Recipe

I have been thinking of making this dish for quite a while. Whenever i go to supermarkets i buy a eggplant to make this, but i end up making this brinjal fry or this simple brinjal roast. Last week i bought this eggplant and immediately got into action and made it, i loved it so much and it turned out brilliant..

This dish is similar to baba ganoush, will share that recipe soon. You can serve it with roti or rice. You can even serve it as dip for chips or anything. Give this a try and let me know how it turn out..
