Punjabi food incorporates very innovative cooking methods, be it the use of the tandoor or the concept of cooking vegetables directly over the flame thus endowing the vegetable with a great smoky flavour. The Punjabi Baingan Bharta has many fans all over the world. Baingan or brinjal cooked directly over the flame till the skin is charred and can be peeled off combined with a fine blend of spices and some ghee makes up this brilliant creation.

While selecting the brinjal for this recipe be sure to choose one's that are large 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!

The bharta teams up well with rotis like Missi Roti , Bajra Roti , Chawal ki Roti , Tandoori Roti and Moghlai Roti .

Baingan bharta.. the smoked flavor of the baingan enhances the taste of the recipe.. the spices added gives a good flavour.. i added onion and curd on top while serving.. this is an authentic bharta i have had..
