Brinjal is also called egg plant and baingan in Hindi is one the healthy and calcium rich vegetable. Using brinjal, I used to prepare different types of dishes called brinjal chops, Stuffed brinjal fry, brinjal raitha, brinjal fry, brinjal tamarind curry. Today, I prepared one national famous dish called baingan bharta using big brinjal. Usually, for this dish, we have to cook the brinjal in direct fire, then peel off the skin. But, I peel of the skin first itself and cooked in pressure cooker leaving only one whistles. This is the easy preparation and the taste also very nice. We can have this tasty dish as a side dish for rice, idly, dosa and chappathy also.I’m very glad to share this wonderful side dish baigan bharta.
