Baigan Bharta has many version with different names and with different type of eggplant. This version is one of the simple, easy and delicious. Surprising was my nephew doesn't like eggplant but he loved this baigan bharta and asked me to prepare again n again!
Serving: 2-3 persons
Eggplant - 2 [if using long ones]
Redchilli Powder - 2tsp
Coriander Powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp
Garam Masala Powder - 1 tsp [ optional]
Salt - to taste
Oil - to stir fry
1. Wash and cut the eggplant in circle (immerse them in water immediately to avoid getting black patches)
2. Take out the pieces from water and pat dry. Sprinkle chilli, turmeric, coriander, salt and garam masala powder and leave it for 5mins (more than 5mins and the salt will start oozing water!)
3. In a flat pan or tawa sprinkle little oil and place eggplant pieces. Cook in slow or medium flame for 4-5 mines. Drizzle few drops of oil if required.
4. Flip other side of eggplant pieces and sprinkle little oil on top of them, cooking again in slow flame for 4-5 mins.
