Baingan ka Bharata

  nutritional value and calories found in baingan.This dish is for 2 serving and will be ready in 35 minutes.


  •  Bhartha baingan 1.
  • Chopped onion 1.
  • Chopped tomatoes 1 cup.
  • Garlic paste 1 tea spoon.
  • Ginger paste 1 tea spoon.
  •  Chopped green chili 1 tea spoon.
  • Red pepper powder 1/2 tea spoon. Oil 1/2 cup.
  • Chopped coriander leaves few.
  • Salt 1/2 tea spoon.
How to make:-
  1. Wash the baingan . Pat dry with a kitchen napkin.
  2.  Apply some oil all over and keep it for roasting on an open flame.
  3.  Keep the eggplant turning after a 2 to 3 minutes on the flame, so that its evenly cooked.
  4. Roast the aubergine till its completely cooked and tender. With a knife check the doneness. The knife should slid easily in aubergines without any resistance. Remove the baingan and immerse in a bowl of water till it cools down..
  5. Make small cuts on the baingan with a knife. Place the red hot charcoal in the same plate where the roasted aubergine is kept. Add a few drops of oil on the charcoal. The charcoal would begin to smoke.
  6. As soon as smoke begins to release from the charcoal, cover the entire plate tightly with a large bowl. Allow the charcoal smoke to get infused for 1 to 2 minutes. The more you do, the more smoky the baingan bharta will become. I just keep for a minute. Alternatively,
  7. Peel the skin from the roasted and smoked eggplant.
