Roasted brinjal and tomato mash
Baigan ka chokha is a very popular recipe from Bihari cuisine.It is often made during winters in bihar, Uttarpradesh and Jharkand region.
Baigan ka chokha and baigan ka bharta both are different.Though Punjabi baigan ka bharta and baigan ka chokha both are made from rosted brinjals but the taste are so different from each other,baigan ka chokha have more rustic flavor in it.
To make baigan ka bharta we fry tomato and spices in oil tempering but for baigan ka chokha roasted and peeled brinjal and tomato are just mashed and few spices and a generous amount of raw mustard oil is added in it and served like it frying is needed after this.
Baigan ka chokha is served with litti or slightly thicker rotis and chili chutney.Dont avoid or skip the mustard oil in it,you cant replace it with any other vegetable oil.
