Baingan Bharta

An easy to make, delicious smoky aubergine curry roasted over an open flame. Bharta means mash and essentially that is what this is. A smoky aubergine mash cooked in various spices. It is delicious with a piping hot roti and is a dish that everyone enjoys. It does remind me of a couple of middle eastern dips minus all the spices and you know how much I love middle eastern food.
