Achari Baingan Bhartha | Special Baingan ka Bhartha

Achari Bharta is just your regular bhartha jazzed up and flavoured with acahri masala, great for days when you crave some spicy and rustic tasting eggplant.
Many prefer grilling the eggplant in the oven but after trying it a few times in the oven I feel the stove top works best for this.
Grilling the onions and tomatoes are completely up to you, but why wouldn't you right? More flavour and the aroma is just too good guys.
Most of you will wonder about the achari spices used in this recipe, basically there be about a minimum half a dozen achari spices used when you make achari sabzis or achari non veg dishes but believe me using the mix I have mentioned gives the same results so why bother using the rest.

We ate this yummy achari baingan bhartha with spring onion rotis and salted jeera lassi.
The tip to making any bhartha taste divine is grilling the eggplant, tomato, onion and also the garlic, you will never go back to the old baingan bhartha recipe once you do it this way.
Achari masala is really quick to make, you can make some extra masala and store it for later after you try this recipe out.
                                                            1/2 tsp panch phoran
                                                            1 tsp fennel seeds
                                                            1 tsp kalonji seeds
roast them on a very low heat and crush very lightly, make sure you do not make a powder
Use mustard oil and heat it till smokey, add onion and the garlic, add salt and allow it to get soft, add in the achari masala, red chili powder and then the tomato chopped. Cook for 5/7 min.

Now add in the peeled and mashed eggplant, mix it in the onion tomato mixture and cook covered for 5 min on low. Remove the lid and mash well so everything is mixed well, check for salt.
Last add in a pinch of garam masala and lots of coriander chopped.

Now your done, try it guys its yummy !
