Baigan Chokha (Aubergine Mash)

Cuisine from state of Bihar is very varied and flavourful, of course texture being different. One of the most popular cuisine is Chokha or Mashed. Potatoes being available in plenty and a staple amongst all, people tend to make Aloo Chokha or Potato mash everyday. Just like Sattu or Chickpea flour is a staple diet so is Aloo Chokha. There are other Chokha’s too amongst which Baigan or Aubergine Chokha is my favourite. It’s tasty, healthy and needs very little ingredients to cook.
