Baingan bharta/Vangyache bharit and some Awards.

Back to work after a lazy weekend break. Baingan bharta aka Indian baba ghanoush is a family fav it goes well with phulka, paraha or even steamed rice. Maharashtirans add some roasted peanuts but I haven't just love it in any form.

 Large black eggplant - 1
ginger and garlic - 1 tbs finely chopped
onion - 2  chopped
tomato - 1 chopped
red chilli powder - 2 tsp
turmeric - 1 tsp
dhania and jeera powder - 1 1/2 tsp
curry leaves - 1 spring
asafoetida - a pinch
chopped coriander- handful
salt -to taste

Wash the eggplant and pat dry with a kitchen towel. Apply oil to the eggplant and start pricking it with the help of a fork. Switch on the gas flame and place the eggplant on it and roast it until the skin it turns soft and well cooked. Let it cool keep aside.Peel off the skin and chop the pulp with knife. Heat some oil add the curry leaves and hing along with onions and  chopped ginger garlic. Cook until onions turn light brown. Now add the dry masalas red chilli powder, turmeric and dhania jeera powder sprinkle some water to avoid burning. Add tomatoes and cook until soft. Throw the eggplant pulp along with salt cook for a few minutes and garnish with coriander. Serve as a side dish with roti or rice.

Yippee Award time.

Thanks a lot Meghna from http://megdeliciousadventures.blogspot.in and Meena of http://chattersmusings.blogspot.com/ showering the awards on me. Thanks for recognizing my work it means a lot.Both of you have wonderful blogs filled with mouthwatering recipes kuddos guys. 

Immense pleasure to share the awards with:


  1. hey supriya yummy bharta

    i make exact same way and in fact had made it just few days back. just one tip would share with you,if you dont mind
    when we put baingan direct on flame the water comes out and dirties the gas. so my sis told me the trick. just roast the baingan on tawa so if any water drips it would be on tawa only and it wud be easier to clean tawa than the gas chulha.

    and ya u havent linked my blog above properly. hehe congrats and u do deserve it.

    1. Hey meena first of all I am sorry for not listing your blog properly actually there were some errors while posting the recipe neways I have made the corrections. Secondly I would never mind to get any suggestions and tips for improvement. The tawa tip is good but I am not sure if we would get the smoky effect with it but nevertheless will try out next time.
      Thanks dear.

    2. ya its fine supriya. at times it happens with me also. about smoky effect hmm well i guess you are right. one thing my mom used to do was put a piece of hot coal at the end and keep it covered. when we serve she wud remove the coal from bharta

      i used to do that before but now i dont wait and just make bharta when i find time or feel like having bharta

  2. Last month i ate this at my cousin place :) Combination of Baigan Bharta with roti is incredible !
