Baingan ka Bharta / Mashed Eggplant Curry

Baingan/ EggPlant is one of the most nutritious Vegetable but unfortunately it was misunderstood as a non nourishing food.This is one of the highly flavourful veggie stuff,
grill,bake roast ,stew eggplants,they're delicious in all forms.Though skin of eggplant is very nourishes ,unfortunately to prepare baingan bartha we need char the skin and throw it away :(  I love this simple and delicious baingan bhartha so much that i'll always be licking my finger.......:). If you haven't tried Baingan Bharta then its high time you give a try,very delicious.I'm recommending this as it has more health benefits like lowering blood sugar levels,and high fiber which protects digestive tract.And also its low in calorie,what more we need to include it in our diet.
