Badnekayi or vaingana kosambari recipe -brinjal (eggplant) salad - how to make baingan ka salad - vangyachi koshimbir recipe

Badnekayi or vaingana kosambari recipe - Brinjal Salad is a very healthy and delicious salad prepared with roasted brinjal, fresh onions and  grated coconut. This is served as a side dish with jowar roti or jolada rotti, rice or chapatis. Several varieties of  brinjals are available here throughout the year. Any variety of large or medium sized brinjal can be used to make brinjal bharta and brinjal salad.  this kosambari has smoky aroma as the brinjal is directly burnt on stove top and tempering with  dry red chillies also give some smoky flavor to the dish. The remaining ingredients such as onions, coriander leaves, green chillies and fresh coconut  are mixed in raw form and the kosamabri tastes great with the combination of all these ingredients.
