Masala Baingan -- Baingan Bharta

Baingan Bharta
Baingan is popularly known as brinjal or eggplant. It is best of all vegetables. We can prepare number of varieties with the baingan like curries, chutneys. There are different variants in curries like baingan- chilli coriander curry, baingan-jeera curry, onion-baingan curry. Without baingan curry any occasion or function is incomplete.
