Bharta means minced or mashed. It can be a vegetarian dish like Brinjal or baingan Bharta or a non-veg like Chicken Bharta. This type of cooking is native to North Indian cuisine, especially Punjabi Cuisine. Baingan Bharta is a very popular dish from Punjabi cuisine just like Chicken Bharta. These are popular items in Dhabas(roadside eateries) and restaurants in allover India and even outside India.
In Chicken Bharta, mashed boiled chicken are cooked with spices with a semi-thick gravy nicely coating the mashed chickens. Some like it with a creamy gravy, some like it without. I usually make this dish with a semi-thick gravy to go with roti/paratha/naan. I have eaten both versions in restaurants, both has its own taste and texture. You can try with a little gravy too.
