Baingan ka Bharta with Green Peas

Best part of winter is that you get fresh green peas :). My Mom used to prepare baingan ka bharta with green peas during winter season. This is one of my favorite dish when served with hot parantha and butter :) . 

                                                    Sabjiyon ke raja ka bharta aka baingan ka bharta ...:)

Winters are already here  will stay for another few days only and both baigan and fresh green peas are easily available in market. I have heard during winter’s there are less chances that there will be an insect in Baingan. So it’s safe to cook.
