baingan bharta, vangyache bharit, eggplant recipe, roasted eggplant, roasted baingan bhurtaIngredients:
1 big eggplant
1 big Onion, finely chopped (around 3/4 to 1 cup)
3 green chilies, slitted lengthwise
For tempering: 1 tbsp oil, 2 pinches mustard seeds, 1 pinch cumin seeds, 1/8 tsp hing, 1/8 tsp turmeric
Salt to taste
Cilantro for garnishing

Method:
1) Roast the eggplant.
i) over stove top:- If you have gas burner, rub little oil to eggplant and roast it on the flame. Turn it occasionally. (Note- Eggplant releases water after roasting, so it may leave stains on the burner. But those stains can be removed by scrubbing)
ii) in Oven:- Preheat the oven at 400 F. Apply some oil all over the eggplant. Poke the eggplant a few times with a fork. Wrap it with aluminum foil. Put it in a baking tray and bake for 45 to 50 minutes. (It does cook the eggplant, but does not give smokey flavor)
iii) Use the barbecue grill to roast eggplant.
iv) in Fireplace (Tip) - Funny to hear but I actually roasted the eggplant in fireplace :). Apply some oil all over the eggplant. Poke the eggplant a few times with a fork. Wrap it with aluminum foil. Open the exhaust before starting fire. Now stack 2-3 twigs in fireplace. Put 1 or 2 coconut shells at the bottom. Sprinkle 2 spoons oil over twigs. Place the eggplant in between so that it gets roasted evenly. Light the fire with some newspapers. After fire kicks up perfectly, eggplant will get roasted within 10 to 15 minutes. Remove the eggplant very carefully by using tong. BE CAREFUL WHILE USING THIS METHOD and taking the roasted eggplant out.

2) Let the eggplant cool down. Peel it and cut off the stem. Chop the flesh roughly.
3) Mix eggplant and onion. Do not throw the juices oozed out of the eggplant.
4) Heat oil into a kadai. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, hing, turmeric powder and chilies. Saute for few seconds and add onion-eggplant mixture. Cook for couple of minutes. Garnish with cilantro
Serve hot with Millet Roti.

Tip
1) I did not use 'starter fire logs' which are available in super markets, as I wasn't sure of what things and chemicals have been used to make them workable. It is better to use fallen twigs.
