Eggplant, rather Brinjal or Baingan as we call it growing up in India, is one of the vegetables which people either love or despise. Everyone who has eaten my eggplant pâté has simply adored it and till date my friends and family continue to ask to make some more for them. This recipe is amazingly simple to create, requiring only a few basic ingredients.
Eggplant is a delicacy in Indian & Italian cooking. Every household has their own version of it. Here is my version of it – spicy and smoky eggplant pâté (bharta). Spoon it over toasted crostini or pita bread, scoop it with some tandoori naan, or simply dig in…Either ways, this simple recipe might become your favorite eggplant ever!!
