    1. Wash the eggplants clean and dry them. Apply oil all over them and put them to roast on naked, high flame and keep turning them so that all the sides are perfectly roasted.
    2. Remove from the flame, peel the skin and mash it. Use a big spoon, ladle or hand.

    The Bharta can also b made using grill, where eggplant can b cooked at 200 degree celcius for half an hour..followed by frying in oil with onion,tomato,chilly and garlic.


    why only garlic and no other veg. like onion and tomatoes. why not adrak paste.
