Simple yet Delicious

This simple yet delicious traditional Maharashtrian recipe involves just mixing a few basic spices together and then rubbing them on to large Brinjal / Aubergine / Bharta Baingan roundels all over.

Baingan Fry Ingredients


These spiced roundels are then evenly coated with a thin layer of rice flour and then shallow fried until golden brown. Rice flour prevents roundels from sticking to the pan along with adding a nice little crispy layer on the outside.

If you like a slight tangy flavour, you can squeeze little bit of lemon juice on each Eggplant roundel before serving.


That’s it, scrumptious Vangyache Masala Kaap / Brinjal Tawa Fry are ready! Serve this quick Baingan Fry hot with chapati or rice or eat it on its own as a starter or a snack.
