      Actually, after one has mashed the roasted eggplant pulp, put the onions and other spices in the oil and fry till they are golden brown. Then add atleast a cup full of fresh and finely chopped tomatoes. Keep stirring till the gravy is well done and becomes red. Now add the mashed pulp and keep sauteeing for additional 3-4 minutes. Sprinkle fresh green coriander leaves. Only this way one gets an authentic indian Eggplant Bharta. Hope you find this useful. Smiles Mini

      Had this for dinner last night, and it was wonderful! The baingan (eggplant) bhartas that we get at restaurants are always terribly oily, but this one was very flavourful! I followed Mini's directions too... the tomatoes really added a lovely tang. Thanks! Also, I scaled it down to 2, but it serves 3 very generous portions if had along with rotis.
