Khatte Baingan is a very popular Brinjal (Eggplant/ Aubergine) delicacy served throughout the country. It is a must have with Biryani and tastes delicious. The recipe of this dish varies from region to region. Some recipes call for curds but we prepare this dish using tomatoes and tamarind. Khatte Baingan can also be served with chapathis, rotis or as a side dish with rice.

GRILLED FISH ON TAVA




Grilling is a cooking method which involves minimal utilization of oil and hence is better compared to deep frying. Grilling is commonly done in an oven, but we can also use a tava or a non stick pan for grilling. The plus point of using a tava for grilling is that the food gets cooked really fast. Moreover if we use a pan with grill marks we get a real grill effect.

This recipe uses very few ingredients and we have added little bit of tomato sauce to increase the flavour and taste. Grilled fish on a tava gets cooked in less than 10 minutes and tastes delicious.
