Gently scrub off skin. Mash brinjals to a puree. Heat oil in a heavy kadai. Add ginger garlic and stir fry for a minute.

Add onions, all dry masalas, except red chilli powder, stir for a minute more.

Add tomatoes, brinjals, salt, lemon juice and stir. Simmer for five minutes. Take in serving bowl.

Just before serving, heat ghee in a small pan. Hold pan over bowl, add chilli powder, and pour immediately over bhartha.

Do not allow the chilli powder to burn. Garnish with chopped coriander.
