Eggplant is my favorite vegetable. From Kathrikkai Enakari to Pitlai to this Bharta I absolutely love cooking with Eggplant & Brinjal. My husband is not a big fan of Eggplants..Many days I used to make Bharta just for myself and used to eat it with Rice or Roti and sometimes even with bread toast 😋😋 This recipe is adapted from Vahchef..That one youtube channel I used to watch during my learning phase in cooking. Almost all of the recipes are super hit.
Eggplant hating husband likes it too and he prefers to eat this as a side dish/thokku to Dosai 😝🤦 Also with curd rice 🙂 I feel that adding garam masala might mask the smokiness of Eggplant. So I just use chilli powder & coriander powder for spicing the Bharta. You can use green chillies too. Today I didn’t have them at home so didn’t add it while making Bharta. However for extra crunch added some capsicum pieces along with onion and tomato. Since I have an induction cooktop I roasted the Eggplant in Oven. However you can fire roast them too. It takes lesser time comparitively.
