Baingan Bartha | Smoked Eggplant Gravy

Hi friends, My first post for VeganThursday event which is initiated by Priya Suresh from Priya’s VersatileRecipes. We members post vegan recipes every first and last Thursday of each month.
Baingan bharta or Baingan ka bhurtha is a North indian special dish cooked with smoked eggplant.The word 'Bharta' refers to dishes in which the ingredients are roughly mashed either before or after the dish is prepared.This is one of our family favourite dish.Traditionally eggplant is roasted in charcoal grill but we can use stove top method or oven.I mostly prefer stove top method, it gives very heady and smoky flavour.It goes well with any indian breads...

Ingredients :

Serves : 3

Eggplants
2
Onions
2
Garlic crushed
1 tsp
Tomatoes
2
Green Chillies
3
Red Chilli powder
2 tsp
Turmeric Powder
½ tsp
Coriander Powder
1 tsp
Cumin Powder
½ tsp
Cumin seeds
1 tsp
Coriander leaves
For garnishing
Salt
As per Taste
Oil
3 tbsp

Steps:


  • Apply some oil to the eggplant.Roast the eggplant over gas stove on medium flame by turning it all the sides so that skin turns black evenly all over.You could also do it in the oven.It takes around 10-15 minutes to cook the whole eggplant.Once it is fully cooked, wait for it to cool down and then peel off the skin and mash well.
 
  • Heat oil in a pan,add cumin seeds,when they pop up add crushed garlic fry for 2 sec then add finely chopped onions fry for 5 mins then add chopped green chillies mix well and cook till onions turn golden brown.

  • Then add chopped tomatoes and all spice powders turmeric powder,red chilli powder,garam masala,coriander powder and cumin powder mix well and cook till tomatoes turn mushy.

  • Add chopped eggplant and salt mix well and cook for 2 mins the add ½ cup water,cover and cook till oil separates.

  • Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with any Indian breads.
