It is known as Baingan bharta or Baingan ka bhurtha chokha(Mashed Eggplant) is a South Asian dish bearing a resemblance to baba ganoush. Baingan bharta is a part of the national cuisines of both India and Pakistan. It is primarily a vegetarian dish that comprises bhurtha (minced vegetables) made from eggplant (baingan) which is grilled over charcoal or direct fire, to infuse the dish with a smoky flavour. The smoked eggplant is mashed with fresh cilantro (coriander leaves), chili pepper, onion and mustard oil. Traditionally, the dish is often eaten with an Indian flatbread (specifically roti or paratha) and is also served with Litti and Batti . Litti chokha is most popular dish in Bihar and east Utter pradesh . Dall bati or bharta is famous Rajithan and Malva region.
In the South Indian state of Tamil Nadu, the Tamils prepare a similar dish called “kathrikai thayir kothsu”, in which the eggplant is cooked, mashed and sautéed with mustard, red chilis and sesame oil. The final step in the recipe involves adding curd to the mixture and dressing the dish with coriander leaves.
In the Bhoj-Puri speaking region such as the eastern part of Uttar Pradesh and west Bihar it is known as Baigan ka chokha, it also popular within the Caribbean Indo-Community such as Trinadad, Suriname and Guyana where descendants of indentured laborers from Northern India live.
