Whenever food has smoked or grilled flavour, there is no second thought about it. Because it has to be tasty. There are so many colorful vegetables available in grocery market during winter. I told you before that my love for winter is only because of food. We can make and also consume without any tension various types of food. Today I am talking about 'eggplant'. Though we both are not big fan of eggplant, but love it in 2/3 forms- 'begun vaja', 'begun pora' and 'begun vorta'. Yess, the recipe is about the last one. 'Baingan bharta' is a very popular dhaba food in India. A simple veggie with loads of flavour will make your dinner a special one. If you can make this bharta properly, the taste will beat any nonveg dish. Just close your eyes and give it a try.
