Chargrilled brinjals cooked with a simple combination of spices and herbs. Every region in india has their own version of baingan bharta…. This is one that's special to the north. Select large brinjals with a shiny smooth surface as these are more likely to be without many seeds. You can also microwave these brinjals instead of cooking them over the flame at step1.
