Bagara baingan is a telangana cuisine which is make mostly in telugu house holds of telangana during functions.People who eat only vegetarian food prefers to eat this dish along with bagara rice during any functions. Brinjal is my favourite food which I mostly love among all vegetables and I love to cook all variations with brinjal , I love mostly brinjal curry with coriander and ginger paste and it taste so awesome .
