Baba Ganoush & Pita with Indian twist

There is a very funny story behind this dish. Today, I wanted to create something new but didn’t have the time as I had to cook for my family first and then focus on my fun projects. I made Indian eggplant bharta, which happens to be a spicier version of the middle eastern Baba Ganoush and roti. So as  was cooking a thought came to me to present the same food in a new light. I made chips out of the roti, made the green and red sauces quickly and here it is – Indian style Baba ganoush with india Pita. baba-ganoush3
