Ringna no Oro / Olo - An authentic Kathiyawadi Gujarati Style Smoky Aubergine Dip

 Ringna no oro or olo , smokiness is what defines this dish and is so finger licking good.  An earthy smoke scented aubergine puree that blends beautifully with spices, herbs,yogurt and this tantalises your taste buds, surely your love for aubergine will become deeper and deeper.  If you like to devour Baingan Bhartha ,Baba Ghanoush /Ganoush or any other smoky aubergine dip, then surely this dish will make its place in your heart.

Ringano oro is an authentic dish, hails from Kathiyawad, Gujarat, especially popular amongst farming community during winter season. Ringano oro  recipe sounds similar to Baingan Bhartha, but it's not. I would say taste wise this dish is no way near to Baingan Bhartha. Baingan Bhartha recipe is made with charred roasted aubergine and once again cooked with fresh herbs, spices and tomatoes, where as this Ringano oro is prepared using charred roasted aubergine, fresh herbs, garlic chutney , raw oil and does not require any further cooking. Ringano oro tastes great with Hot Millet flatbread ( Bajri no Rotlo ), as a main meal and can be served as starter dip with crackers or toasted pitta bread too.

This recipe is not mine, since I was young I heard a lot about it, once or twice husband mentioned that his mum used to make Ringano Oro, but I never tried as I did not have an authentic recipe, until a friend from Kathiyawad, highly spoke about it few months back. Since she gave me her family recipe, we demolished many bowls of Ringano Oro, oh and did I say that even daughter liked it too !!!
Fresh herbs, garlic and peanut oil adds a lovely flavour to Ringano oro and yogurt cuts down the hotness from the fresh green chilli and garlic chutney.

Notes :-
Instead of garlic chutney , you can add fresh minced garlic cloves and red chilli flakes.
