Baingan (Brinjal/ Eggplant), given to me in any form (except raw ;) ) is my weak point!! From simple curries, stir fries, tava baingan, vangi bhat (brinjal rice), stuffed brinjals to bhartas....its just heaven!! This is the simplest recipe, with minimal ingredients & almost no cutting stuff....and is a hurry time preparation for me. Tastes great with proper tempering.....
Instant Baingan(Brinjal) Bharta
Serves: 2-3 Preparation Time: 5 mins Cooking Time: 10 mins
3 large purple/ green brinjals/ eggplants (washed)
4-5 garlic cloves (finely cut)
2 green chillies (finely cut)
2 tbspn chopped coriander leaves
1/2 tbspn red chilly pwd
2-3 tbspn oil
Step 1: Apply some oil on the brinjals & roast it on the gas burner over medium heat. A nice roasting aroma will emanate all over the kitchen. It will take approx 10 mins.
Step 2: If you have time, let them cool or else hold them under cold water & peel of the skin. Check them (important!!) & mash.
Step 3: Put the red chilly pwd & salt in middle.
Step 4: Heat oil in tadka pan. Once its hot enough, add garlic, when it turns pink, add green chillies. Saute for 30 secs. Turn off heat. Add this tadka above the red chilly pwd & salt in the middle of the mashed brinjal.
Step 5: Add chopped coriander & mix well. Serve with bajra roti/ chapati.
