Baigan ka bharta(Mashed eggplants)

Baigan ka bharta is one of the very easy recipes which goes well with phulkas/roti.The use of egg is optional here and can be avoided.Sometimes there is a different version of baigan bharta in which it is prepared without cooking ie- To the mashed eggplants add salt,chopped onion and green chillies and it tastes yummy:-) Below posted is the cooked version.

Ingredients -
eggplant/brinjal/baigan - 3 big
onion (1 medium)
tomato (1 small)
garlic (5-6 cloves)
ginger (1 medium piece)
green chillies (3-4)
