Hi Deepa, that baingan bartha is different from any recipe I have seen, so I must try it. Looks really delicious with the mango dal! :)

Three of my favorite ingredients. Green mango, moong dal, and eggplant.

I have never tried bainghan bartha with tamarind. That recipe sounds great.

Do you know what this is?

I thought you might be able to help me identify this unique indian fruit.

Thanks for your help.

I enjoy your blog.

You do not mention how much raw mango to use. How big are the 6 pieces?
When is the turmeric added? Won't it taste raw if I add it after pressure cooking the dal?

Hi Ag,

Just add about 6 inch pecies of raw mango.Add turmeric after pressure cooking & the mango will not be raw it cooks in 5mints ok.
