My mom makes this bharta/chutney whatever you want to call it and I love it. I was always skeptical about making mashed eggplants. Now that I did it once by baking eggplant, I wanted to try this as well. So, here you go another eggplant bharta recipe.
Dahi Baigan Bharta - दही बैगन भरता (Baked Eggplant in Yogurt Gravy)
Baigan (Eggplant) - 1 big one
Dahi (Yogurt) - 2 cups, not very thick, but not even runny
Sabut Lal Mirch (Whole Dry Red Chilli) - 1 broken in pieces
Hari Mirch (Green chilies) - 2
Ajwain (Carom Seeds) - 1 tsp
Rai (Mustard Seeds) - 1 tsp
Urad Dal (Split White Lentils) - 1 tsp
Chana Dal (Split Chick Pea Lentil) - 1 tsp
Salt - as per taste
Oil - 2 tsp
Dhaniya Patti (Cilantro) - for garnishing
Enjoy it with warm rice or roti.
I am sending this to Side Dish Showdown - Anything Goes event hosted by Cinnamon Girl.
That's all for now. Take care till next post.
