Bharvan Baingan

Stuffing them with spices and besan really enhances the flavour of brinjal in this dish! This subzi is easy and quick to make, as long as you have a pressure cooker on hand.

Use the small and dark varieties of brinjal as they have a mild sweetness which combines well with the stuffing.

Bharvan Baingan , Whole Wheat Bhakri , Moong Dal Khichdi and Punjabi Kadhi make an interesting and comforting meal combo.
