As making baigan bharta or eggplant messed curry is a very simple recipe, it does not really need too much effort to make this delicacy, just go through the simple process..
Wash off your baigan..give a scratch in between for a deep roasting..As baigan Bharta is made by roasting the baigan on direct flame, it has a very authentic smokey flavor which makes it different from other types of Bharta or curry..
Now roast the baigan/eggplants directly on flame by flipping it time to time..make sure your flame is in medium..roast well..
As soon as the baigans get roasted well..it will become soft to touch..remove it from the gas and let it cool down for 5 minutes.. now take a bowl of water and remove the burned skin out of it by dipping your fingers in the bowl time to time for a clean peel off..
Mess it well using a masher …now put a pan on the gas..add oil..let the oil be hot..now add the mustard seeds and curry leaves..as soon as the seeds starts to pop add the garlics into it..then add the chopped onions..mix well..cook in medium flame for 2 to 3 minutes and then add the turmeric powder and chilli powder..mix well..then put the mashed baigan/eggplant into it..mix well..add salt..cook for 2 minutes in medium flame and the super delicious baigan Bharta is ready to be on your plate..
