Baingan also known as an Eggplant or Brinjal is a very known veggie amongst the weight watchers. It has a very low calorie value yet highly nutritious. Apart from weight loss it is also good for ones heart. Another important benefit of Brinjal is that its good for your skin. 

So, according to me brinjal should be added in our regular diet in any form for atleast once or twice weekly. And the most common recipe of brinjal is the bharta made from roasted brinjals. The most peculiar element about this recipe is its smoky flavour and taste which can be obtained only by roasting the baingan on an open fire and not in the microwave. So lets move on to the recipe starting with its ingredients and then the method:

1/2 tsp Garam Masala powder

Coriander for garnishing

3 Tbsp Oil

Salt to taste


Wash the brinjals and pat dry them. Then apply some oil on them evenly.

Then mash the baingan and keep it aside.

In a pan heat oil and add jeera followed by onions.

Stir fry the onions till golden brown and then put the tomatoes and green chillies.
