  • Add the onions, tomatoes, turmeric, coriander powder, chili powder, and some salt, mix well and cook for a couple of minutes until you see it starting to dry out.
  • Now add the achaari masala, National Crushed Mixed Pickle, and mashed baingan and combine it well with the tomato mixture and cook until you see the bharta coming together.
  • Adjust the seasoning and garnish it with some fresh coriander or mint.
  • Enjoy Achari Baingan Bharta with Phulkas.
