Baingan or brinjal or egg plant is my favourite veg. Can eat brinjal in any form but sadly no one eats it. But that doesn't stop me in cooking brinjal. My most favorite is bagara baingan and baingan ka barta. I always used to rub oil on the brinjals and roast them on the stove top. But his time i baked the brinjal. Here is the recipe:-
Brinjal (long) 1
Chopped onions 1
Chopped tomatoes 1
Green chillies 2 chopped
Garam masala 1/4 tsp
Turmeric a pinch
Coriander powder 1/2 tsp
Ginger garlic paste 1 tbsp
Red chilly powder 1/2 tsp
Oil for frying
Rub a tsp of oil on the brinjal. Place a tray in the oven and place brinjal on it and bake for 15-20 minutes on 350 degrees Celsius.
Once brinjal changes to the colour seen in the below picture, take it out and let it cool. Remove the skin from brinjal.
Take the rest of the oil in a pan. Add onions and green chillies until golden colour.
Add ginger garlic paste,turmeric powder,coriander powder and red chilly powder.
Saute for 3-4 minutes.
Add tomatoes and mix well. Cover the pan for 2-3 minutes and saute again for 2 minutes until the tomatoes are well cooked.
Chopped the peeled brinjal into big pcs. Add it to the above gravy.
Mix thoroughly and sprinkle garam masala powder. Can add chopped coriander leaves and mint leaves.
Serve it with roti and sometimes i eat like that.
