Baingan Bharta(Mashed Aubergine Fry)

by Neetu

This my first video blog ever and I wanted to keep it simple and easy, so the best option that came in my mind was Baingan Bharta… its a super comfort food for me and I don’t even need chapati to eat bharta, can have it with just a plain slice of bread….

Please have a look at the video and lemme know your feedback…..

  • Roast Brinjal/Aubergine on high flame from all sides, take a knife and insert in centre if it passes through easily means brinjal is cooked.
  • Keep it aside for some time so  that its cooled down then remove the skin and mash it.
