Baingan Bharta

I feel like I just finished a marathon.  With the weather so gloomy and muggy, I had no heart to cook nor photograph.  Obviously, one does not have the luxury to wait until the sun decides to shine if you have to eat at home.  I forced myself out of my chair this morning and put baingan bharta together.  The delicious color and taste makes the effort worthwhile. Phew!
  Hope you enjoy baingan bharta, a scrumptious mix of egg plant in spices.
