Punjabi Baingan Bharta |Baingan Ka Bharta Recipe

Punjabi side dishes

Baingan bharta is my fav side dish and we love to have it with hot phulkas. Its is so easy to make and with many ingredients or spices used it is a great comfort dish among punjabi's. Though the traditional baingan bharta is made with aubergine I tried them with the small eggplants. The smoking roasted eggplants taste great in this side dish and roasting the eggplant in open flame is a must as it give a distinct flavor to this yummy side dish.  I made this yummy curry for dinner and we had them with hot phulkas. I know every one are busy in preparing for diwali But its not sweets and snacks for the whole we will also be making some lunch and dinner right ;) so here is yummy side dish do make for a diwali lunch  or dinner.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#45
