Baigan ka bartha is a north indian dish.In konkani we also prepare the dish but with coconut,we call it vaigana Bharath .Actually in older days people used to roast the brinjal directly on the fire.that makes the dish more tasty.But in my recipe i have used gas fire to roast the brinjal as i have no other choice.Anyway takes was superb.

Once you finished roasting all the brinjals,remove the skin and wash it under the running water.
