Bharwan Baingan always means a dose of excitement for your taste buds, whether it is made the Punjabi way with a rich coconut-based masala, or in a healthy way with less oil!

Here is a super tasty version of Bharwan Baingan, in which the brinjals are stuffed with a sweet, tangy and spicy besan mixture before pressure-cooking. The pressure-cooking methods enable you to get the same traditional taste without using oodles of oil!

You will enjoy the multi-faceted flavour of this dish, which tastes awesome with hot rotis .

i always avoided bharvan brinjals coz of the high amount of oil it requires for cooking untill i tried this low cal version! this recipe is surely a dieters choice as it uses just 1 tsp of oil and is pressure cooked. the filling is an innovative blend of onions and grated potatoes..different than ususal bharvan baingan mixture that uses only besan, spices and oil.
