baingan chokha recipe for litti chokha, how to make baingan chokha recipe

baingan chokha recipe with step by step photos – bihari style baingan chokha or baingan bharta recipe.

baingan chokha as it is called in bihar is a fire roasted mashed aubergine dish that is served with littis or sattu ka paratha. the recipe tastes very different than baingan bharta. apart from baingan, all the other ingredients used are raw. nothing is sauteed in oil. a bit of mustard oil is added which gives a slight pungency in the dish and compliments the light sweet taste of the baingan very well.

to prepare the baingan chokha recipe, you will need bharta baingan or the large violet aubergine or eggplant. fire roasting baingan, gives a smoky flavor to the dish. though you can even roast aubergine in an oven.

again like tomato chokha and aloo chokha, this recipe is very easy. apart from serving with litti, you can also have baingan chokha with rotis or parathas or as side accompaniment with any north indian meal.
