    I'm on the hunt for a good sabji recipe I can make to go with my other dishes. At Gurdwara we often have one that has lots of veggies in it and it's quite spicy but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for on the bew - I suspect I'm not using the right search words. The ones I like seem to have peas and cabbage in them, and eggplant? I'm not sure, but the time it gets onto my plate some things are tricky to recognise haha

    Meantime I think this one from Manjula sounds de-lish!

    Okay, here's my attempt of Baingan Bharta! I took the picture under my rangehood light so all the colours are washed out but IRL it's much redder. However, it's also more watery-looking than Manjula's so next time I'll cook off the tomatos a bit more. I needed a bigger eggplant! But it still tasted awesome, and I didn't get hing all over my kitchen this time! :D

    What I learned: When cooking an eggplant in the microwave, poke some holes in the skin first or else you'll poop yourself when it goes BANG! LOL

    It looks BEAUTIFUL... as good as any on Google images. I plan to change the pic in the spotlight to use that one!

    What a great night for warm and lovely events here! What a forum should be! Like a conversation that brings a diary of our days together... thanks to you!

    p/s Too , you know, you have to pierce the eggplant if you use a regular oven too! That helps drain the moisture.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
