    You can only use large sized eggplant for this recipe. Black color eggplant is widely available at any regions. I have used green color eggplant which has less seeds.
    Wash the eggplant and pat dry. with the knife, make small slits into eggplant, and place 2-3 garlic cloves into it. then grease it with some oil.
    put eggplant into direct gas flame, cook it on open fire on medium heat, rotate it with spatula every 2-3 minutes. Make sure that it is cook from all the sides.
    The skin must be burned or blistered completely, and eggplant must be soft enough, you can verify by using knife. If knife passed though easily, it is cooked otherwise roast more 3-4 minutes.
    Then transfer the eggplant into cold water, and let it sit for 2-3 minutes. Remove the garlic clove from it and make paste of that roasted garlic with other remaining garlic ponds. Peal the skin off and chop it finely.
    To start cooking baingan bharta, take 3-4 tbsp oil into pan, and add just little bit cumin seeds. Then add garlic paste and little red chili powder.
