How to make Oats Baingan Ka Bharta

  • Place the brinjal on the stovetop flame, with continuous monitoring, using tongs to turn the brinjal around while it is roasting. After about 10 minutes you will notice that the brinjal’s skin begins to char and the inside begins to get tender. To test, when you insert a knife, you will feel it is soft and not hard. If hard, continue to roast until done.
  • Once the brinjal is roasted, allow it to cool down. Peel the charred skin of the cooled brinjal and discard the skin. Coarsely mash the pulp using a fork or mince finely using a knife.
  • Heat oil in a pan over medium high heat. Add the cumin seeds and allow seeds to crackle. Add the grated ginger and chopped onions, sauté over medium heat until the onions are tender.
  • Then add the grated tomatoes, pumpkin, turmeric powder, green chillies, coriander powder, garam masala powder and chilli powder. Allow the pumpkin to cook until soft. Sprinkle a tablespoon of water if required.
  • Add the Saffola Classic Masala Oats. Add 1/2 cup water and stir to combine and sauté until all the ingredients come together for about couple of minutes.
  • Stir in the roasted brinjal and salt. Turn the heat to low and simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • Turn off the heat and garnish with chopped coriander leaves and serve.
