Used different ingredients.
Try this small change and you will definitely have authentic baingan ka bharta. After peeling off the eggplant skin, mash the pulp coarely. Use the mashed eggplant for the last steps when you return this to the pan with onions etc. Cook this well, add 2 tsp of cumin powder, 1 tsp red chilli powder and 1 tsp garam masala. Happy cooking ! - 29 Sep 2008

I give this a five because it was simple. I added some fresh ginger because it was a bit bland. I'm glad I did because it turned out great! - 29 Sep 2008
Altered ingredient amounts.
After eating something similar to this in a Mediterranean Restaurant I have been searching high and low for a recipe. This is it! This recipe is very tasty and easy to make. I left out the coriander and the next time I make it I will omit or cut out the cayenne pepper. It was just a little too hot for me but a great eggplant side dish! Good and healthy! - 29 Sep 2008
