Ingredients

4 portion(s)

Bharta

  • 1 large eggplant
  • 20 gram olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and halved
  • 3 clove garlic, peeled
  • 2 tomatoes, halved
  • 1.5 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 2 teaspoon curry powder
  • 2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 130 gram frozen peas
  • salt and pepper to taste
5

Recipe's preparation

  1. Prick the eggplant with a fork and bake it in a 180° C oven until soft, about one hour.

     

  2. Remove the eggplant from oven, allow it to cool, and chop it up into large chunks – it should be very mushy. Set it aside in your Thermoserver.

     

  3. Put the onion and garlic into the TM and chop on speed 7 for 3 seconds.  Use spatula to push to the bottom and add oil and cook for 3 minutes at 100 degrees on speed 1.

     

  4. Add tomatoes and chop on speed 4 for 4 seconds.  Use spatula to push to the bottom of the bowl and then add all of the spices except for the salt. Cook for 5 minutes at 100 degrees speed 1 with the simmering basket sitting on top of the lid instead of the MC to prevent splashes.

     

  5. Add eggplant and peas and cook for 2 minutes at 100 degrees on REVERSE speed 1 until combined and heated through.  (May take longer if the eggplant was not kept warm in the Thermoserver.)

     

  6. OPTIONAL: raise the speed to speed 3-4 to mash the whole mess together if you’d rather have a smoother mix.  If you prefer it chunky, omit this step.

     

  7. Add salt and pepper to taste.

     

  8. Serve with rice.

    This was a great curry. I added a can of chickpeas, a tablespoon of tomato paste and 3/4 cup of coconut cream I had left over. I also added zucchini instead of peas.

    Sensational! I really loved this recipe, as did my husband and 13 year old (the 11 year old not so much but mainly as he's not an eggplant fan). Like others I added chickpeas. It's going in the favourites.

    As suggested, I added in a can of chickpeas and a can of lentils to make it more substantial as a stand alone meal and it was delicious. Thank you

    Just made this, i added 200gms chicken thigh with the tomatoes and used 3/4 tsp chilli. I think this is by far and away the best curry i have ever made. I was going to put a serving aside for my mum but not sure if i can give up the leftovers!!
    Served with mango chutney and plain yogurt

    Thanks for a great recipe!
    I diced the eggplant & added 200g quartered mushrooms before baking for about an hour.
    Used a tin of tomatoes, fresh ginger, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp coriander, 1 tsp garam marsala as well as the other spices.
    Added a couple of handfuls of baby spinach at the end.

  • This is the best curry recipe

    Submitted by alexakelly on 23. February 2016 - 16:43.

    This is the best curry recipe I've tried in the Thermomix so far! Nice and easy too. I salted the eggplants prior to cooking, I find it gets rid of any residual bitterness. Also you definitely need an hour in the oven.

    Submitted by Stitching2die4 on 8. November 2015 - 21:08.

    Perfectly Indian. I made it as written and with home made curry paste. Western, non veg palate might need some adjustment. Served with chapati, rice and Indan salad. Loved it! Thank you

    A really lovely dish, I added a tablespoon of tomato paste at the end to increase the richness and served it with coriander and quinoa chippattis and it was a winner. Next time I'll add some lentils to increase the protein levels. Thanks for sharing!

    Delicious! I added cooked lentils at the eggplant stage as my husband loves them. Wow it was delicious. We both went back for more. Thank you for sharing.
