Baingan ka Bharta

Baingan ka bharta ( बैंगन का भरता ) is a very popular dish which is liked by everyone in North India. For the people who doesn’t like to eat brinjal, this is a way to go. I spread baingan ka bharta on a chapati and make chapati roll for my son who is actually a brinjal-hater  but loves these chapati rolls 😀

Let’s see how to make it. (If you don’t want to use onion-garlic then simply omit them and follow the rest of the method as it is.)

A note from Author : 

The food which is available outside can not be as hygienic and safe as you can prepare it at home with love for your kids and family but at the same time the truth is that cooking becomes very tiring when you do it daily. So as much as I love to cook food myself for my family, I like to keep the recipe very short and simple yet the taste is amazing. This saves my time and gives me satisfaction too. Here I am sharing my recipes with you. Please try them out and let me know. Don’t forget to rate the recipe below. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Happy cooking!! 🙂
