Baingan Bharta (Eggplant curry)

Nowdays, pravin & I like to have north indian dishes very frequently. I bought a eggplant few days back to make some starters with that & finally I grilled it and made this delicious baingan bharta for phulkas. Smoky taste of eggplant in tangy tomato sauce has become my favourite sidedish & I just loved it :)

Ingredients :
  1. Egglant - 1 medium sized
  2. Oil - 2 tsp
  3. Garlic - 2 pods
  4. Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
  5. Onion - 1 no
  6. Ginger - 1/2 tsp (minced)
  7. Chopped green chillies - 2 nos
  8. Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  9. Tomatoes - 1 cup
  10. Corriander powder - 1 tsp
  11. Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
  12. Corriander leaves
  13. Chillypowder - 1/2 tsp

Method :

1. Apply oil on the eggplant & grill it. Cool, peel & mash. Keep aside.

2. Heat oil in the pan, add cumin seeds, minced ginger & garlic. Add onions & saute till tender.

3. Add green chillies & chopped tomatoes. Add corriander powder, cumin powder, chilly powder & finely chopped corriander leaves. Cover & cook.

4. Add the mashed egglant. Cook for 10 more mins on medium flame.

Garnish with corriander leaves & serve with phulkas.
