Baingan Bharta (Eggplant)

This pan-India dish is an excellent example to showcase simple and rustic technique.

What probably was a time-saving kitchen experiment for our ancestors is repeated even today, with chefs across the country slow-roasting their brinjals over an open flame to replicate its smoky flavour!

Recreate the traditional experience with hot rotlas!
