*Before cooking, you must check for the presence of any hole in the brinjal, the chef advised. A hole would mean that the brinjal is infested.

*To cook bharta, it is best to use big-sized brinjals to prepare an adequate quantity.

*Your palm may become sticky while preparing it. So dip them in water to remove the burnt skin.

*After burning the brinjal, use a spoon to spread it and check if it is completely clean.

*If there are excess seeds in the brinjal, it might affect the taste. In this case, it is best to remove the seeds while you chop the burnt brinjal.

Burnt brinjal is not just used for making bharta. You can also make salad or a delicious dip with burnt brinjal, chef Kunal Kapur added.
