Baingan Recipes - Eggplant Recipes - Brinjal Recipes


This is my absolute favorite vegetable! I cook it by itself and add it to other dishes to enhance their flavor and nutritional value. Eggplant is made in numerous different ways in India. Here are just a few of them...

Baingan Ka Bharta - Seasoned Roast Eggplant

Baingan Bharta is a healthy food - eggplant that is the main ingredient, is low in fat and sodium and high in dietary fiber, vitamins C and B6 magnesium, phosphorus and pottasium. Add to that the tomatoes, green chillies and onion and you've packed a mighty nutritional punch in one single dish!

Baingan Aaloo Ki Subji - Eggplant and Potatoes

I often serve this dish for lunch or dinner and tea it with hot Chapatis (Indian flatbread) and a pickle.

Bharvaan Baingan - Stuffed Baby Eggplant

Baby eggplants stuffed with a delicious, tangy spice mix! Serve this really easy-to-cook dish with plain white rice and Lehsuni Daal (garlic-flavored yellow lentils).

Achaari baingan - Pickle-style Baby Eggplant

Hot and tangy, Achaari Baingan tastes great with hot chapatis (Indian flatbread).

Baigun Bhaja - Pan Fried Eggplant

Baigun Bhaja (fried eggplant) from the state of West Bengal is a great side dish for any meal. You won't believe how easy it is to make!

Khatta Meetha Baingan - Sweet and Sour Baby Eggplant

If you thought eggplant was a boring vegetable you haven't eaten this dish. Try it, you'll definitely like it.

Shahi Baingan - Eggplant Curry

Shahi Baingan takes this humble veggie to another level! The nuts and raisins add a regal touch to the dish making it fit to serve a king! I like to serve Shahi Baingan with hot Chapatis or Parathas.
