Baingan Ka Chokha- Bihar Special

Bihari cuisine is eaten mainly in Bihar, Jharkhand, U.P, Nepal, Fiji, Bangladesh and some more regions. This is very 1st time when I tried Bihar Cuisine.  There are so many popular dishes in Bihar i.e. Sattu, chokha, fish curry, kebab, halwa, liti and more. This time I prepared Chokha, It’s a mashed  and spicy recipe with vegetable. I used brinjal or eggplant or baingan to prepare chokha that’s call “Baingan Ka Chokha”.

Baingan ka bharta is very popular Indian veg. recipe which made by mashed eggplant but Baingan ka Chokha is little differ then bharta. In chokha, we grill all ingredients on charcoal or direct flame i.e onion, tomatoes, green chili and eggplants. Mash and Cook with spices, its call chokha. For this recipe, first we have to roast eggplant, onion, tomatoes, green chili and mashed them in roughly form. Cook with spices and serve with puri, paratha or roti.

Preparation time: 15 Minutes
Cooking time: 20 Minutes
Servings: 3
1 Big Brinjal/ Baingan
1 Medium sized Onion/ Pyaaz
2 Small Tomatoes/ Tamatar
2 Green Chilies/ Hari Mirch
1/2 Tsp. Ginger Paste/ Adrak
1/2 Tsp. Cumin Seeds/Jeera
Coriander Powder/ Daniya Powder
Salt to Taste/ Namak
1 Tbsp. Mustard Oil/ Sarso ka tel
Pinch of Asafoetida/ Hing
Green Coriander, Chopped

Grease the brinjal with mustard oil and prick the brinjal with fork. Roast the onion, tomatoes, green chili and brinjal separately on medium flame. Peel the skin of brinjal and tomatoes. Chop onion, tomatoes, brinjal and green chili in fine and rough form.
Heat mustard oil in pan till to smoking point. Add cumin seeds and asafoetida, when start splutter. Add chopped green chili, ginger paste and sauté one minute. Add chopped onion and sauté for 2 minutes. Add chopped tomatoes and brinjal mix well. Add salt and coriander powder mix well. Cook for 5 minutes more and garnish with green coriander. Now baingan ka chokha is ready to serve with sattu ki roti.
Note: Don’t mashed onions and tomatoes completely, just chopped finely.
