Nutrition: per serving



  • 2 Aubergines
  • 2 Onions Finely chopped
  • 2 Tomatoes Finely chopped
  • 2 Green Chilies Finely chopped
  • 3 cloves Garlic Minced
  • 1- inch Ginger Grated
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1 tsp Coriander Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp Chilli Powder Adjust to taste
  • Salt To taste
  • 2 tbsp Oil
  • Coriander
  • 1 tbsp Lemon


  • To begin, roast the aubergines. You can achieve this by directly placing them over a gas flame or using a grill. Continue roasting until the skin chars, and the flesh turns tender. Remember to turn them occasionally for even roasting. This should take approximately 15-20 minutes. Once roasted, set them aside to cool.
  • Once the aubergines have cooled sufficiently, peel away the charred skin and mash the flesh using either a fork or your hands. Remove and discard the stems.
  • In a pan, heat the vegetable oil over medium heat. Add the cumin seeds and allow them to sizzle.
  • Add the finely chopped onions and sauté until they become translucent and acquire a golden brown hue.
  • Add the minced garlic, grated ginger, and green chilies. Sauté for an additional 2-3 minutes until the raw aromatics dissipate.
  • Add the chopped tomatoes and cook them until they soften, and the oil begins to separate.
  • Combine the mashed aubergines with ground coriander, ground turmeric, red chili powder, and salt. Thoroughly mix all the ingredients and cook for 5-7 minutes, occasionally stirring.
  • Continue cooking the mixture until it amalgamates, and the oil starts to separate along the edges.
  • Finish by adding a dash of lemon juice and garnishing with fresh coriander leaves.
  • Serve this aromatic Baingan Bharta hot with roti or naan. Enjoy your homemade delight!
