Baingan Bharta Dip (Roasted Eggplant Curry Dip)

Baingan Bharta Dip (Roasted Eggplant Curry Dip)

Baingan bharta is a traditional North Indian curry made from roasted eggplant, tomatoes and onions. It is one of my favorites. You can tell when people have discovered the goodness of this curry because they will consistently order it at Indian restaurants (i.e. my friend Stephanie).

Baingan bharta and dip are words that don’t usually go together, but I’m so glad they do now! This dip is so good, I’ve been eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It’s basically baingan bharta but chilled with some tahini, lemon and yogurt – kind of like Indian baba ganoush!

I also took it to a party and it was gone fast. I came back to the empty bowl and sort of had a frown smile on because I wanted more but was happy that others had enjoyed it. I really like it with naan bread, but it tastes good with warm pita too. Also, this recipe is two in one so you can also use it as a guide if you want to make just the curry. A nice addition if you do make the curry is to add some fresh green peas.
