{Garden To Plate Series} Baingan bharta

baingan_bharta Eggplant/brinjal is my least favorite vegetable, bitter gourd is a close second. Baingan bharta is the only way I would eat eggplant since it’s all mashed up but hey, I eat it that’s what matters right. ¬†We have been harvesting eggplants every other day and once I have enough I make this dish. We usually have it with roti/phulka. This is how I make. You will need Eggplants- 4 ( I use the japanese eggplants, if you are using the regular ones use 1, or if smaller ones use ) Onion- 1 big( chopped) Tomato- 4-5(chopped) Green Chili- 4(finely chopped) Ginger garlic paste- 3/4 tsp Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp Red Chili Powder- 1/2 tsp Garam masala/ Kitchen king- 1/2 tsp Cilantro for garnishing Salt to taste METHOD
