Baingan Bharta, Sambhar, Roti and Papad (roasted mashed eggplant, pigeon pea curry, Indian Flat Bread and lentil chips). Vegan Recipe. #veganricha #vegan

Thats a mouthful of names 🙂

I just thought of putting up a couple of complete meals on the blog. This week one of our meals was Roasted and Mashed Eggplant(Baingan Bharta), Pigeon Pea curry(Toor daal sambhar), Indian flat bread(Rotis), and Lentil chips(Papad).
A post on some types of Indian bread used in daily meals is in the works.
Here’s My recipe for Baingan Bharta !
Heres the wiki about Papads/Papadam with pictures and a video on how to make your own at home . (I just get mine from the Indian stores, microwave them for 30 seconds or roast on medium flame and they are ready!)
Heres a video on how to make Roti/Chapati . We use vegan butter or organic canola oil instead of ghee(clarified butter).
And the recipe for my version of Sambhar follows below.
Baingan Bharta .. Roasted Mashed Spiced Eggplant.
Papad.. microwaved.
