Spicy Hot Eggplant Dish (Baigan Ka Bhart)

I learned how to make this dish from YouTube, it’s an Indian vegetarian dish.  It’s super HOT, my husband and I like it so much, especially with roti ( Indian flatbread) or tortilla to go with it,  I like to toast the roti/tortilla and dip it in this eggplant dish..so good!  This is also a great side dish for grilled/barbecued meats.

..it’s so easy to make, really easy! 🙂

..just put everything in a pressure cooker…I peeled the eggplant here but you can just leave it on like it said in the recipe

after about 5 minutes of high-pressure cooking..

Stir vigorously with a wooden spoon or a potato masher.  I know it doesn’t look very appetizing because it’s mushy, but appearances can be deceiving you know. .

Drizzle a little EVOO  before serving..If you like hot and spicy food, you really should try this..

HOT & SPICY EGGPLANT DISH

Ingredients:

4 slim eggplants
5 tomatoes
4 green chillies
4-5 driedred hot chilli peppers
2 onion
1/4 teaspoon tamarind paste
1/4 tsp cumin seeds ( I used powder)
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/4 teaspoon ginger powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup water
extra virgin olive oil ( EVOO) for drizzling

Directions:

Put all the ingredients in a pressure cooker plus half a cup of water. Turn on heat, as soon as the pressure is built, put on simmer; and cook for about 5 minutes then release the pressure.

Remove cover/lid and turn the heat up high again, and with a wooden spoon stir the eggplant until most of the water has evaporated. It will begin to turn mushy but that’s how it supposed to be.. Transfer to a serving dish and drizzle with a little EVOO.

Serve with roti for a hot and spicy snack or I like to pair this with grilled meat..so yummy for snacking

Thanks for your time…have a nice day!! 🙂 ♥
