Brinjal is a vegetable that most people don’t like to eat, especially kids. Brinjal is also called an Eggplant. But this Indian recipe ‘Baingan ka Bharta’ is everyone’s favorite. In this recipe, brinjal is put directly on the flame to roast it perfectly. This will give the smoky flavour.  This is a popular vegetarian dish in north India. Most of the Punjabi restaurants are serving Baingan ka Bharta in the main course. This recipe is served with Chapati (roti) or a Plain Parantha, raita (curd), buttermilk (lassi).

Here, I will also share some tips or suggestions for picking the right eggplant for making perfect ‘Baingan Ka Bhartha Recipe’. This Baingan Ka Bhartha is not cooked with long eggplant, you can take a big fat dark purple eggplant for this recipe or you can criticize that eggplant has more flesh and fewer seeds, you should also check brinjal in your hand, that lightweight brinjal has fewer seeds as compared to a heavy one. At last, you should also check that hole or cracks in eggplant, that hole or crack means there is a worm in eggplant so, always choose smooth skin or lightweight brinjal for ‘Baingan Ka Bhartha Recipe’. So, I am going to share a Baingan Ka Bhartha Recipe step by step with photos.
