Bharwan baingan dry recipe

Bharwan baingan dry recipe is a flavorful dry side dish perfect to go with roti. I love the ajwain flavour along with mild mint and coriander flavour in this recipe. Quick video, step by step pictures.

I love to try different brinjal dishes being a big fan of brinjal. The stuffed brinjals are very fascinating to see and interesting to cook too. Though already have couple of south Indian flavored recipes are there in my blog, this recipe sent by my BIL is very different from the others I have tried. By simply going through the ingredients, I knew it will be good as it is similar to my aloo bhindi masala gravy shared by my friend.

Yet this is different because of the mild mint flavour and mainly ajwain’s flavour. As it was cooking, the smell was awesome. I had it with rice for lunch and with roti for dinner. I liked with roti the best, recommend the same to you too. Should try with mild pulao varieties next time.

I chose big aubergines available in Fairprice. You can try it with any brinjal variety but this looks fancier. Just adjust the cooking time accordingly.

  • Cooking in low flame ensures the inside of the brinjal gets cooked.
  • Don’t choose too big brinjals. Select the smallest available so that it gets cooked easily.
  • Overcooking makes the brinjal loose it’s shape. Also while turning towards the end of cooking time, the brinjals will be soft to handle. Be gentle while turning.
  • Adding right amount of spice and salt is important as it helps the brinjal turn out perfect taste. otherwise it will be very bland.
