Super Spicey Baigan Bharta
Baigan Bharta is my most favorite Indian dish. I really wanted to do a good job with this, but HOLY WOWZAAs was this HOT! I used this recipe and it called for 1/2 teaspoon of Masala powder. Next time I will use 1/2 of that, or even less! I also subbed a can of diced tomatoes instead of fresh, because that is what I had on-hand. I ommitted green chilies.
Roasting the eggplant was pretty simple, but skinning it was not. I put the roasted eggplant in my food processor instead of mashing it by hand (I love that thing!).
I am determined to master this recipe. Eating out gets really expensive! The smokey flavor was there, but way too hot for my taste.
