Roasted, peeled and mashed, the brinjals transform into an aromatic ingredient perfect to create this traditional Punjabi subzi. Cooked along with tangy tomatoes and pungent ingredients like onions, ginger and green chillies, Baingan Bhurta is an accompaniment that goes equally well with rotis and rice, making you have much more of the main course! Usually roasting the brinjals is a bit time-consuming, but here we accomplish the task in a jiffy using the microwave oven.
