About this Recipe

Fiery Baigan Bharta Winters without Baigan ka Bharta is totally incomplete!As fresh green peas are in season now days,so why not to enjoy the Baigan ka Bharta with peas. This Bharta I have named it as fiery because its very spicy and Chatpata! When i was a kid i never like to eat bharta :-P same thing is with my kid but this time i have made it spicy and tangy one,so she loved it!Kids do like spicy and finger licking veggies and this one was really delicious! I love to have the bharta with my comfort food i.e.bread :-D But in winters this bharta goes really well with hot plain paranthas and a cup of tea!Brinjal is very good for health also like its good for heart,being rich in fiber,potassium and vitamin B6 and lowers the heart disease and risk!
