Baingan Bharta/Punjabi Baingan Bharta

Baingan Bharta is a simple and delectable Punjabi recipe. Though the recipe is very easy and simple the taste is extraordinary and complex because of the smoky and charred flavour of the Baingan/Eggplant. The word bharta or bhurtha means chopped or minced vegetables made from egg plant with is grilled over charcoal or direct fire to infuse the dish with a  smoky flavour.

Baba Ganoush Recipe– Middle Eastern Delight/How to make Baba Ganoush with step by step photos

Baba Ganoush is a dish made out of Eggplant/Aubergine/Kathrikkai, along with tahini paste, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil. The Eggplant/Aubergine is baked or broiled over an open flame and the skin is peeled out. This is done to make the Eggplant pulp soft and to get a smoky taste. It is a very common and popular dip eaten along with kuboos/pita bread in the Middle East. I have had this Baba Ganoush several times in Lebanese restaurants when I used to live in USA. Another very similar and authentic dip/chutney made in Tamil Nadu [South India] is the Sutta Kathrikkai Chutney which also has the smoky taste along with Indian spices and seasoning. Do check out the Tahini Paste which is the base for the Baba Ganoush and also try out the Sutta Kathrikkai Chutney – South Indian version of Baba Ganoush.

Kathrikkai & Murungakkai Kaara Kuzambu/Brinjal & Drumsticks Gravy

There are different types kara kuzhambu made in our South Indian homes, each one has a distinct taste and flavor. I just love the combination of brinjal and drumsticks and it is very common in our house. I prefer to make all types of kuzhambus with gingely oil to get both the taste and the health benefits of it. 

Gingelly oil/Nalla ennai is cold pressed oil and has numerous health benefits. Cold pressed oils are produced through a  combination of grinding and low heat without any addition of chemicals. Gingelly oil is derived from sesame seeds, using this method. That is why I think it is named as “Nalla ennai” meaning “Good oil”. Try to incorporate ginglley oil as much as possible in your cooking… Check out other delicious South Indian -TamilNadu special Kuzhambu varieties here.
