A lot of my readers tell me that they love how I name the everyday recipes and make them sound exotic . I know they’ll have a huge smile on their faces , when they read today’s recipe name – Burnt Aubergine curry.
What’s there in a name ? You say. But sometimes a unique title , makes the dish more attractive , and maybe nudge you a little , to give the age old recipe a fresh shot.
Last week , my hubby was travelling for work purpose . And I made a regular call to enquire about the normal things….. Where are you ? Reached airport on time?, Checked-in ? Boarded?…. you got it right?
He was looking through the in-flight menu ( not a fan of the in-flight menu , anyway). He said that , there was an interesting option in the vegetarian section…….. burnt Aubergine fry with Chapati . And was thinking of giving it a shot.
I just had to stop him then and there ,Do you even know what that is??? ….. its Baigan ka Bharta. One of the perks of being a food blogger , you know all the food jargons 😉 .
An everyday preparation , but named interestingly , made my hubby order it , over the regular paneer and rajma chawal.
So giving the name a shot here too. A lovely recipe made with Aubergine / Eggplant / Brinjal , call it whatever you like. It’s the simplest ever recipe, but high on flavor. A simple tempering , just to enhance the mildly sweet flavor of burnt aubergine. Hope you all enjoy it !
