vangi bharit recipe

this vangyache bharit recipe is the maharashtrian style of making baingan bhartha. vangi or vangya stands for aubergines in marathi language. i have already posted two similar recipes:

like baingan bharta, the recipe calls for roasting the eggplant on fire. the fire roasted eggplant gives a smoky flavor to the dish. nowadays we roast the baingan on stove top but in good old days, the baingan used to be roasted in charcoal fire and that really gives a good smoky charcoal flavor to the baingan bharta.

you can serve the vangyache bharit with phulkas or chapati. it will also go very well with jowar roti or bajra bhakri.

this vangi bharit recipe was shared by a maharashtrian friend and from then on i have always made it this way. the recipe just uses basic indian ingredients – onions, tomatoes, garlic, green chilies and coriander leaves. thats it… no spice powders. so easy to make with these ingredients that are usually stocked in the kitchen. the recipe is made with large aubergines or eggplants.
