Baghaar-e-baingan | Recipe of Hyderabadi bagara baingan
Posted in : Recipe, Vegan, Vegetarian on by : Tags: , , , , , ,

This is a wonderful traditional recipe which I had come across in Hyderabad during the period of my stay over there. I stayed around 2 years in Hyderabad , and loved the culture and vives of the city. With perspective to food the city is wonderful with varieties of cuisine available. The prominant among them is the local Andhra cuisine and the Muslim cuisine by the Nizams both flavorful in their own ways.

Hyderabadi cuisine  is the native cooking style of the Hyderabadi Muslims, which   was developed and enhanced with the Qutb Shahi dynasty and became the royal cuisine of the Nizams of Hyderabad State. It is influenced by Mughlai, Turkish,Arabic cuisines  in addition to the local Telegu cuisine  which is spicy due to the use of fiery chilies which were a local produce of the state.Under the  supervision and patronage of the Nizams, the cuisine became popular creating a array of delicious dishes.  The use of khuskhus or poppy seeds and roasted peanuts are seen widely used providing a nutty texture to the vegetarian and meat gravy. This blog is about Baghaar-e-baingan which involves cooking of small egg plants in a rich creamy gravy prepared with roasted sesame seeds, roasted groundnuts and poppy seeds paste.I also have Mirchi ka salan recipe you can check out. The souring agents used is tamrind extract though you can also use tomatoes if you fancy them.
