Vegeterian Recipe: Baingan ka bharta (squashed eggplant)
HOW TO PREPARE : - Finely chop the onion, tomato and green chilly separately and set it aside. Next wash the eggplant and pat it dry. Coat the brinjal with oil and roast it on the burner on a low flame. Keep turning the brinjal to ensure that it is well cooked on all sides. Once its roasted let it cool. After it is done peel the skin. Since it's roasted it will be black and will peel off very easily. Now mash it nicely. Take a frying pan and pour the oil in it and bring it to heat. Then put in the green chilly and saut briefly. Next add the onions and fry them till they turn golden brown. Add the red chilly powder and turmeric. Mix well till it all blends and then sprinkle the salt evenly. Saute for a minute and then add the mashed brinjal and cooked peas. Simmer and cook for eight minutes. Garnish with coriander and serve with chappatis.
