Let’s admit it, not many of us are the biggest fans of eggplant, but serve it to us in a form of a bharta and watch us lick our plates clean. 'Bharta' in Hindi refers to anything that is smashed. More often than not, we associate Bharta with Baingan, this smoky delicacy has a thick, dry consistency. It is commonly paired with roti or rice with some dal on the side. Turns out, you can make a bharta out of a lot of things in your pantry, from chicken to aloo, the options are endless. Some of our favourite recipes...
Fiery, mashed eggplant that is first smoked on high heat. An absolute North Indian favourite.
Mashed turnip with lots and lots of spices, a Punjabi winter speciality we are never getting enough of.
