Khandeshi Vangyache Bharith | Vangi Bharith Recipe

vangyache bharit

khandeshi bharith

This recipe is little spicy but very delicious ….it looks green …the aroma of coriander, green onions and garlic gives it a very tempting flavor .

I have tasted variety of eggplants(vangi/brinjal/baingan) from almost all parts of India…But the best one which I had ever tasted is from “khandesh”(which is also called “Banana Republic of India”) ,  irrigated agricultural region of western India…The big light green shiny slender shape eggplant ( brinjal /  aubergine ) are available exclusively in this region of Maharashtra…This brinjal are huge and one might weigh up to 2-3.5lbs…the roasted eggplant recipe of this eggplant tastes the best … I’m following the same recipe which is very traditional in this part of India … if you ever visit the small village of this region of khandesh you will love to stuff yourself with this spicy recipe…the traditional roasting of this brinjal is done on bonfire  … Well now I don’t stay in north maharashtra so I’m using the big purple eggplant for this recipe.
