Baingan bharta I think is one of the tastiest dish that can be made from Baingan(eggplant/Brinjal).
I love its unique smoky flavor that comes when you grill/roast it and then it is peeled and mashed and mixed in onion tomato masala... oh heaven :).

It tastes best if roasted on open flame on a gas stove but if you don't have one you can always broil it in the oven.


  • Eggplant - 1 big
  • Onion - 1 medium(chopped)
  • Tomatoes- 2 medium(chopped)
  • Green chilies- 2- 3 chopped(seeds removed)
  • Salt- to taste
  • Red chili powder- 1 teaspoon
  • Garam masala- 1/4th teaspoon
  • Turmeric powder- 1/4th teaspoon
  • Coriander powder(optional)- 1/2 teaspoon
  • Coriander leaves - to garnish


  • Roast the eggplant on the flame till its skin is perfectly charred and starts to fall
  • Let it cool or put in cold water
  • Peel the eggplant and mash it nicely
  • Heat oil in a pan and add onions and saute till very light brown
  • Add green chillis and saute for another minute
  • Now add all the spices and tomatoes
  • Cook till tomatoes are soft
  • Add mashed eggplant and mix well
  • Cook for another minute
  • Garnish and Serve Hot!
