Method

Apply some oil on the eggplant,make slits on the eggplant 3 to 4,now stuff the garlics in the split and roast it on a wire rack or net on open flame,keep turning it so that baigan cooks from all sides well.

Remember the flame should be low

By applying oil on the eggplant,cooking becomes fast

once the eggplant is soft and the size shrinks that means its done

Make slits on the tomatoes and green chili as well

on the same rack roast them as well,till colour changes to little black

Once the eggplant,tomatoes have cooled down,peel the skin and keep aside

mash the tomatoes,eggplant,garlic,green chili,potatoes

chop the onions and spring onions(greens)

in a big bowl,take mashed eggplant,garlic,tomatoes,potatoes,green chili,onions,spring onions(green)coriander leaves,mustard oil and salt

mix it very nicely,you can get the roasted smell of the chokha

NOTE;I have used some fresh garlic leaves also(roasted)with the pod
