ROASTED EGGPLANT RAITA
Hi, friends welcome to my food corner again. I try to usually make the healthier version of foods and believe in eating right food only, and in this regard, here I have tried to come up with an interesting, healthy and experimental dish which is partly a bharta and partly a raita. I make it in my kitchen quite often because it’s tasty and healthier and good at times when someone in your home is having a stomach problem. This raita-cum-bharta can be made without adding any oil and it has the goodness of curd in it. So it’s a great dish you all must try.
- Eggplants – 2.
- Yoghurt – 1 cup.
- Onions(finely chopped) -1(small).
- Green Chillies(finely chopped) – 2.
- Grated Ginger – 1 tsp.
- Red Chilly Powder – 1 tsp.
- Roasted Cumin Powder – 1 tsp.
- Mustard Oil – 1 tbsp.
- Salt – According to taste.
- Black Salt – A pinch.
- Dry Mango Powder(optional)- 1 tsp.
- Catch Dahi Masala(optional) – 2 tsp.
Wash and slit the eggplants, keeping them intact and roast them on gas. Now put them under running water and deskin them taking out its pulp in a bowl. Mash them.
Take a bowl. Add the yoghurt to it. Now mix in the chopped onions, chilies, salt, red chilly powder, black salt, roasted cumin powder and add the mashed eggplants into it. Also, sprinkle some grated ginger. Now add mustard oil. You can also add some dry mango powder if you want a tangier version of this dish, but if you like it simple you can omit this ingredient out. You can also add some catch dahi masala but its optional.
Our Roasted Eggplant Raita is ready. Garnish it with fresh cilantro.
