Brinjal curry/ bharta

Brinjal curry, also known as eggplant curry, is a delicious and popular dish in many cuisines around the world. It is made using brinjals (eggplants/aubergines) cooked in a flavorful sauce with various spices, herbs, and sometimes other vegetables.

This is a brinjal bharta recipe and we called it in Gujarati ringan nu bhartu. Brinjal bharta is a fuss-free and simple side dish to make at home.

Brinjal also known as eggplant or aubergine is roasted on fire till it is charred, mashed well, and then cooked along with some other vegetables and Indian spices.

Brinjal bharta is a very simple and delicious meal either for lunch or dinner or to pack in the lunch box for the office or school.

Each house has its own version of making this brinjal bharta. And here I m sharing my way of doing it which happens to have a without onion-garlic flavor.

When I made this last month trust my son usually doesn't like brinjal but he enjoys this curry.

  1. Wash brinjal make deep cuts or slit all around it using a sharp knife.

  2. Smear a few drops of oil all around the eggplant. Roast directly over the flame and turn around so the skin gets charred and the inside of the brinjal gets cooked well.

  3. And then keep it in one big vessel and cover it for half an hour so still gets cooked more.
