Baigan bhartha(Smokey Brinjal) - My Style

Six years back wen i got married,i hardly knew anythg to cook.It was becoz i never spent time with my mom in d kitchen.But nw things hav changed..am not an expert i must say but not that bad as a cook.
After wedding the first few dishes that i learnt from my MIL ,this is one of them.only change was that she taught me steamed version of this recipe.

Brinjal/Eggplant-2 big
Onion(thinly sliced)-2 medium
Tomato (thinly sliced)- 1 big
Coriander Leaves-1tbsp
Red chilli powder-1tsp
Garam Masala-1.5tsp
Coriander powder-1tbsp
Mustard seeds-1tsp

Wash n clean brinjals,apply little oil on them and roast on medium flame over a stove.
Keep turning the sides every 2 min.
When the skin turns black and starts peeling off,remove from stove.Keep aside to cool.
With the help of a knife remove the skin,and take out all the flesh in a plate and mash it lightly with a spoon or spatula.

Now,in a kadai heat oil ,put mustard seeds.
Add garlic-saute,then add the onions.Mix well and cook till light brown in color.
Later add all the masalas.Add tomatoes,mix properly and put the lid.cook for 5 min
When the tomatoes are soft add brinjal,mix well.Cook for another 5-10 min.

Garnish with fresh coriander leaves and Serve hot with Chapatis.

Nb:- this Sabji taste yummy with bread slices too.Those people who don't have time to stand and roast brinjals,they can cut the brinjals into cubes and steam it-rest process remains the same.
