This French omelette recipe is a classic and versatile favorite.

Baingan Bharta

Baingan Bharta

Yet another favorite Punjabi recipe at home. Quick to prepare a simple Baingan Bharata recipe without the use of many masalas and spices. We simply love this recipe in its simplicity and taste.

I have learned this recipe when I was doing preparation for my M.sc Part 1 exams for that I have to go Patna and I don’t have such time to cook good food but as a food lover I always look for spicy food and baingan (brinjal) is one of the easiest vegetables to be cooked so, I tried Baingan ka Bharata with some pinch of herbs and garam masala.

While selecting the brinjal for this recipe be sure to choose one that is large elephant size with a shiny smooth surface as these are likely to have a lower number of seeds. All in all this scrumptious dish is worth all the time and mess it may create!
