Baingan Bharta (mashed egg plant) a Crowd Favourite on 19Sep2017

bharta

bharta was another unrehearsed first attempt for me.

i did bharta as one of 7 indian dishes i did for the recent 10pax dinner for my friends on 19.9.2017.^^

literally watching & rewatching the “Baingan Bartha – By Vahchef @ Vahrehvah.com” video while i cook, & reproducing it.

like i told my friends – didn’t know what it was before cooking & didn’t know what it was after cooking.

i just followed Vahchef @ Vahrehvah.com” video –

  1. coat with oil, sprinkle sea salt & roast 1 medium egg plant (300g dutch eggplant) in 250degC oven for 25mins. remove skin & roughly chop eggplant.
  2. fry 2 tsp cumin seeds in 1 tbsp oil
  3. add 1/2 tsp chopped ginger, 2 tsp chopped garlic & 1 medium chopped onion.
  4. add 3 cut green chili, and 2 cut tomatoes
  5. add roughly chopped egg plant
  6. add 1 tsp garam masala & 1/2 tsp tumeric

bharta

anyhow the amazing thing with recipes is that for the most part theseattempts turn out quite perfectly, and it did this evening.

the bharta was a favourite dish & S who is vegetarian and arrive later nearer 9pm (we kept the vegetarian briyani & lots of bharta for him) liked it a lot too.
