This easy baingan bharta recipe is going to be a sure shot hit at your home!  Eggplant is cooked with garlic, onion, tomatoes & all those aromatic masalas and before getting roasted on an open flame, gives you the most delicious smoky flavour. Enjoy my version of Baingan ka Bharta with Roti, Rice or just like that. Love M #ChefMeghna #BainganKaBharta #BainganBhartaRecipe

Heat up the pan
Add some oil
While oil is heating up take eggplant
Apply little oil on the skin of the eggplant
Roast eggplant on flame 
And remove the skin-off the eggplant
Take the mashed eggplant in a separate bowl
Now in the hot oil, add cumin seeds (Jeera)
As cumin seeds start getting cooked, add finely chopped garlic
Now add 1 spoon ginger-garlic paste
let them cook
Add finely chopped onion
Add salt per taste
Cook till onion gets brown
Add green chillies chopped
Time to add all dry masalas as we want masalas to get little roasted in the oil for that amazing aroma
Add turmeric powder
Add Kashmiri red chilli powder
Add coriander powder (Dhaniya powder)
Add garam masala 
let them get roasted for a while
Add 1-2 chopped tomatoes
Mix them all
Cover the pan with a lead and let them cook for 5-10 minutes
Tomatoes are well cooked, should get mushy
now add some coriander leaves, leave some for garnishing
Time to add the mashed eggplant
mix well
The eggplant was already cooked when we roasted it on the flame, but we want to ensure it gets a mushy and slightly thinner consistency
Add little water
cover the lead and let it cook for 5-7 minutes
Baingan ka bharta is ready, enjoy the smokey flavour
Take it out in a bowl, you may garnish with coriander leaves and green chilis
