Baigan Ka Bharta

My all family members likes this North Indian dish because the sweetness of onions and tanginess of
Tomatoes and smoky roasted eggplant.

Eggplant(baingan)-1 large
Mustard Oil-2 tbsp
Tomato-2 (chopped)
Potato-1 (boiled and mashed) optional
Onion- 1(chopped)                                   

Garlic clove-2 to 3
Ginger paste-2 tsp
Cumin seed -1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds-1/4 tsp
Methi seeds-6 to8
Turmeric powder-1/2 tsp
Red chilipowder -1/4 tsp
Green chili -1 chopped
Salt to taste
Coriander leaves for garnishing

Rub the  little oil over eggplant,this will help to remove skin easily.
Make 2 to 3 slits and insert garlic clove. Roast the baingan over a medium flame.
turn it frequently with tongs, until the inside is soft and skin
Is completely charred on all sides.Let it cool,then peel and mash along with roasted garlic clove.
Heat oil in a pan add cumin,mustard and methi seeds, let them crackle add onions and green chili
and sauté Until light golden brown, add ginger paste sauté until raw smell goes away.
Add tomato and sauté until oil separates from the pan.
Add all dry masala and salt sauté for few seconds, add mashed eggplant and potato.
Mix well,cover and cook for 2 to3 minutes. Turn off the heat and garnish with chopped
Coriander leaves.serve hot with chapati.
