Baingan Bharta Recipe|Step By Step Pics

     Baingan bharta is a easy Indian style curry made with Aubergine the large eggplant.Eggplant is called by different names like brinjal,baingan,aubergine,Kathirikai(in tamil).
     Baingan bharta is done by roasting aubergine in gas and then smoke it.I instead roasted in oven (broiled in oven).Its was smokey,tangy,spicy ..and its a best dip i can say.If you want to roast in direct gas then refer dassana post ,she explained dhungar method(infusing the coal flavor to baingan).I got the idea of oven roasting from Sony who is a blogger friend of mine.
    Usually people in India have baingan bharta for roti an Indian flat bread.we  had it with bread and it was quite amazing..
    This recipe i did it for shhh.... cooking secret challenge hosted by priya suresh sis .This month my partner is priya sis .She gave me onion and aubergine as the secret ingredient .I normally do kosumalli with small brinjals apart from that i can think about baingan bharta ,my fav.
    I have given step by step pics as well for amateurs.I used 1/2 tsp chili powder as we are spice lovers.If you guys don't want much spice reduce the chili powder to 1/4 tsp .You can also include 1 green chili with 1/4 tsp chili powder.
