Baingan bharta (eggplant curry) is a very popular Punjabi vegetarian dish enjoyed in all of North India and some other places. Baingan ka bharta has a very smoky flavour and taste because of the roasting of baingan (Aubergine/Eggplant) on direct gas fire. Traditionally, the baingan is roasted on fire, skin peeled off, chopped and then added to an onion and tomato curry. The smoky mashed baingan curry goes very well with roti/chapati/naan and a simple salad.
