|Roasted Eggplant Chat|
Eggplant/Aubergine is a very popular in any indian family for preparing bharta,Baingan Bharta. Eggplant is very good source of dietary fiber and very low in calories.If you are on
a diet ,then this is one of the healthiest choice. I'm trying very hard these days to reduce Gp's weight so trying out many healthy recipes which includes less oil, tastes good and makes us feel fuller.You can try this healthy recipe for a evening chat or dinner with a veg soup,to keep you full.I was aware that they just roast and eat eggplant .......,so i just tried it out with my own twist.Do try this ,its a very healthy option 🙂 and it tastes good too.I liked everything about this dish,but my husband felt i should have trimmed the skin of eggplant as we do it in baingan bharta....! Definitely one would love this for its taste and ofcourse for its healthy benefits of this vegetable.:)
