ABOUT Baghare Baingan RECIPE

Quintessentially Hyderabadi side dish. It is a must have with it's equally famous main course- the dum biryani. Nothing can beat it's awesome pairing. These two are just inseparable and incomplete without each other. Infact they both compliment each other so well like no one else.
