Bagara Baingan With Tomato Gravy.. They are many ways to cook this bagara baingan recipe, this is very famous in Hyderabad but they add peanuts and cashew nuts paste. Few days back i was watching one serial on sony tv, there she serves this bargara baingan to her family. She did not tell the recipe :) but it was looking very taste to my eyes. On the same time i told my self i should make this dish at any cost. To give a twist i made it without peanuts and cashew paste, it was tasted like bharta with whole baingan and it was going very well with Roti.
