Baingan Bartha

For this week's Cooking from Cookbook challenge I have made Baingan Bartha from TD's cook book "Swadist Subziyan". Baigan Bartha is one oh Raghu's favourite Subzi. .and it has been quite a long time since I made it home.. To make it you need

You need
Brinjal - 1 large
Onion - 1/2 cup finely chopped
Tomato - 1/2 cup finely chopped
Jeera - 1 tsp
Ginger & garlic paste - 1 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
Coriander & cumin powdet - 1 tbsp
Green chillies - 1 tsp finely chopped
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Ghee / Oil - 2 tbsp

Coriander leaves - finely chopped for garnish

Grease the brinjal with a little oil, make slits all over the surface and cook in the microwave on high for 10 - 12 mins. (the original recipe called for cooking it over open flame)
Cool and peel the skin. Mash the pulp thoroughly and keep aside.
Heat the ghee/oil and add the cumin seeds. When they crackle add the onions and sauté for a few minutes.
Add the ginger, garlic and green chillies and fry again for a few seconds.
Add the tomato, turmeric powder, coriander-cumin seed powder and cook till the oil separates from the masala for about 3 - 4 mins.
Add the mashed brinjal, garam masala and salt and mix well.
Serve hot garnished with the coriander.

This is off to the CC Challenge December Edition - Week 2
