Instructions

  1. Roasting the egg plant

    • Rinse the eggplant under cold running water. On an open flame or on top of a grill, roast the eggplant till the skin gets completely charred (blackened and crumbly) on all sides.
    • Keep on rotating the eggplant on the flame so that it gets cooked evenly and from all sides.
    • Insert a fork or a knife into the centre of the eggplant, and check if it has turned soft and mushy. If not, continue roasting.
    • This whole process should take around 8 to 10 minutes. Once completely charred on the outside and soft on the inside, transfer to a plate and set aside.
    • When it’s cooled enough to touch, peel off the charred skin & chop the egg plant to a mash-like consistency on a chopping board.

  2. Making the Bharit

    • In a large pan over medium heat, add peanut oil and heat. Add the onions and cook until translucent, or for about 2 to 3 minutes. 
    • Add the chopped garlic and green chilies. Cook until the raw taste and aroma disappears, or for about 2 minutes.
    • Add the chopped tomatoes, red chili powder and turmeric powder. Cook till the tomatoes become soft and the oil starts to leave the side of the mixture, or for about 5 to 6 minutes.
    • Add the chopped eggplant mash to this mixture. Sprinkle salt and cook for 4 to 5 minutes on a low heat.
    • Add in the chopped coriander leaves and stir well.
