Vaingana bharta recipe - badnekayi bharta recipe - how to make baingan ka bharta - brinjal bharta recipe

Vaingana bharta recipe - Brinjal bharta is a delicious accompaniment to all varieties of Indian flat bread. It pairs excellent with jowar roti or bhakri. It is absolutely easy to prepare and healthy too. Burn the brinjal directly on stove top, make a flavorful onion tempering and mix all the ingredients to combine well. Soft and smoky flavored bharta gets ready with few steps. Any  variety of large or medium sized brinjal can be used to make this dish. I had two deep purple  brinjals in my fridge. Out of them I used one brinjal  for making bharta and another one is used to make salad. Here is the easy recipe to get the perfect bharta.
