QuikCurry™ Bhurta-Mutter

Bhurta is a delightful dish typically served with roti and daal or raita. Since it's warming, it's great to have during the fall and winter months. Thoroughly cooking the eggplant neutralizes the toxicity of this nightshade. In Ayurveda, those with Pitta dosha are advised to take caution and avoid eating it during hot weather. However, it's warming property comes very handy during the cold months and, even folks with Pitta can enjoy it in moderation.

Recipe Notes

Although I prefer bhurta-mutter with roti and daal, it's also great with pulao or even plain rice. My favorite combination is rice, toor daal, and bhurta.
