Baingan Bharta

Baingan bharta, famous Punjabi roasted mashed eggplant dip was one of my favourite, this time i got hooked with Aipi's Baingan Bharta which i bookmarked at her space coz this mashed eggplant is prepared along with a variety of veggies which sounds quite delicious for me, yep this baingan bharta goes for cooked and mashed potatoes, bellpeppers and mushrooms which pulled me to try out this dish today for our dinner and i served this baingan bharta along with rotis, both together turned absolutely delicious our dinner and works out wonder..Thanks a ton to Aipi for sharing her hubby's way of making baingan bharta, hats off to ur man Aipi..Even my man loved it along with rotis which was a hard task for me always whenever i prepare anything with eggplants..Obviously this is my entry to Priya's & Aipi's Bookmarked Recipes..

  28. Hi Priya- it makes me really happy that you and your husband liked the bharta. I know I find myself licking the bowl every time hubby makes it and I myself am not the biggest eggplant fan... maybe your compliment will encourage hubby to make a few more things and more often ;) You did a real fine job recreating it. It looks perfect.
    Also,thanks a lot for linking this to bookmarked event.
