    The topic, concept of Bharjana (frying) is used to transform / trigger the alkaloids / poly saturated fats / big chains of aminoacids to break and make bio-available. some times the components are active by heat.

    Bharajana makes the products easily digestible. it also helps certain unwanted things to get evaporated. Ex. Hingu & Vacha. It is process of Sodhana. It promotes the desired effects and deletes the unwanted effects.

    first of all bharjana is not frying, it is roasting. actually frying is putting a any substance in hot oil for sometime and allowing it to stay there itself in the oil. we do not do it for the purpose of shodhana in RS & BK. Here, bharjana is to roast. in an iron pan put the drug and add some ghee/any liquid substance and stirred to dry. for eg: gairika, Hingu bharjana is done with ghee. But we do not find reference for bharjana done in RS for any metal. I hope the information is clear.

    Bharjana as shodana is advocated for Tankana, Kankshi, and in few contexts for Shanka (only for external application). This is also called as UTTFULLIKARANA by Ayurveda prakashakara. in this context excludind shanka the procedure is aimed at breaking down the water of crystilization present in the formation of salt. in case of shanka it is aimed for reduction in presence of air.

    In metals this is done as a prior step or as a preparation procedure for marana. As in Makshika,subjected for bharjana with Nimbu Swarasa.
    In Dhatu shodana it is not explained. the Logical understanding of the procedure itself speaks that it is done in presence of air to bring about redox reaction.
