Equipment

Ingredients
  

  • 2 medium-sized eggplants
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tsp grated ginger
  • 2 tomatoes chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Fresh coriander leaves chopped (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C). Prick the eggplants with a fork and place them on a baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes until the skin is charred and the flesh is soft. Alternatively, you can roast the eggplants over a gas flame on the stove until they are charred and soft.
  • Remove the eggplants from the oven and let them cool. Once cool, peel off the skin and discard it. Mash the eggplant flesh with a fork or potato masher.
  • In a large skillet or frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and ginger and cook for 3-4 minutes until the onion is translucent.
  • Add the ground cumin, ground coriander, turmeric powder, cayenne pepper, and salt. Stir well and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and cook for 5-6 minutes until they have softened and released their juices.
  • Add the mashed eggplant to the skillet and stir well to combine. Cook for an additional 5-10 minutes until the flavors have melded together.
  • Serve the Baingan Bharta hot with rice or naan bread. Garnish with fresh coriander leaves, if desired.
