    1. 1
      Set oven to broil on high. Grease the Egg Plant with some oil, poke 2 or three holes (so it doesn't explode)and put it in the oven. Keep checking it till the outer skin starts cracking and can be peeled off easily. You want the skin to burn a little so the eggplant has a smokey flavor.
    2. 2
      Allow the eggplant to cool a little. Peel the outer skin of the eggplant under cold water.
    3. 3
      When the skin is removed, mash the eggplant well so that it has an even consistency, you can keep seeds or remove them based on your preferance.
    4. 4
      Put some oil in a pan. When hot, put hing (Asafoetida)and Jeera (cumin seeds)in. After a minute or so, when the cumin seeds begin to turn darker and give off aroma, add the finely chopped onions.
    5. 5
      When the onions are light golden brown, add the finely cut green chillies and ginger to it.
    6. 6
      Heat the mixture for 2-3 minutes. Then add tomatoes and stir until this masala is pulpy and seperates from the oil.
    7. 7
      Add all the masalas and add the eggplant to it. Stir it well and crush the eggplant as much as possible.
    8. 8
      Heat and stir it until the egg plant is well blended into the onion and tomato paste mixture.
    9. 9
      The more you sauté it, the more enhanced the flavor becomes.
    10. 10
      Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with Parathas or Roti (Indian flat bread).

      This is traditional Indian food! This is by far the best baingan ka bharta on zaar. I used less tomato and onion because I didn't want to make too much and wanted more eggplant flavor. The way you had me broil the way to make it! It made the eggplant taste really really good. I will definitely make this again. I LOVE this recipe!
