Baingan ka Bartha is a fire-roasted baingan cooked with spices. Roast the baingan(eggplant) over the gas on medium flame. The most important thing is roasting the baingan over the flame gives the great taste or flavor to the recipe. Some people roast the baingan(eggplant) using the microwave. But fire-roasted eggplant gives the smoky aroma and flavor that makes the dish too good. You also roast some garlic cloves with the baingan(eggplant). Roasted garlic cloves and roasted tomato give divine taste to the dish. Here I use 5-6 cloves of garlic.
Once the baingan is roasted mash it well and cook with spices such as ginger, chili, onion, garlic, and cumin seeds. I also used peas in my dish but peas are optional.
