Baigan ka raita is a delicious yoghurt based side dish made with shallow fried brinjal and given a tempering to enhance the flavour. Its so simple easy and quick that can be made in just 15 mts . I had this first in Afsha's house which was made by her sister and I couldn't stop licking every bit of it as I am a brinjal lover. So here I am sharing this quick easy recipe with you all too. Do try it when you dont know what side dish to make for your next meal.
