Punjabi Baingan Bharta Recipe
At my place, Roasted eggplant or Baingan Bharta is made with Litti or Batti but it is very different from the Punjabi Baingan Bharta. My dad is a big fan of Punjabi Baingan bharta. He orders it at almost every restaurant or Dhaba where we had a meal with him. We had some amazing and some horrible experience of Baigan Bharta ordered at a restaurant or Dhaba. (I hope he reads this :P) The Dhaba style Punjabi Baingan Bharta recipe has never disappointed us so far. There is something really amazing about Dhaba style food, rich in taste and it makes you crave for more. For me, road trips are also exciting because of these midway Dhaba lunches or snack breaks and the enticing food they offer.
Baigan ka Bharta is a simple dish made with the eggplant also known as aubergines roasted directly over the fire till it is charred, mashed well and then cooked along with commonly used Indian spice powders, but the smoky flavor of the roasted Baigan is the main highlight of the dish. The smoky flavor adds a different dimension to the dish so I will insist not to miss this step. Baigan Bharta with sattu paratha or tandoori roti with a dollop of ghee tastes really divine. I tried to make this Indian burnt aubergine curry or roasted eggplant curry at home this time and it turned out to be really good.
