Baigan Bhartha On Makki di Roti Bites


Baigan bhartha( Roasted Eggplant) with some spices is a very popular dish of India. In this recipe also I have tried to present this main dish in the form of snacks or appetizers. To save this roasted eggplant , I have used cornmeal base known as Makki di Roti. Flatbreads made from corn four. I must tell you the traditional way of roasting the eggplant is a messy task. For variations , I had prepared this dish same way but the topping of eggplant was substituted by dry palak paneer - an Indian curry made from spinach and cottage cheese, garnished it with ginger and red bell pepper. Instead of spinach we can also use kale, and instead of cottage cheese ricotta cheese can also be used.
