How to make it

  • Wash the egg plant .. make some diagonal cuts on it n push each of garlic inside the egg plant It depends how much u want to put garlic inside i add 2-3 cloves ... now if u like u can grill it or simply put it on the gas burner n let it cook changing side with help of tongs
  • In 10 minutes u will see the skin of eggplant like flakes n the inner part is soft n cooked
  • Remove it from the burner let it cool down for 2 minutes then with the help of tongs holding the cap of egg plant scrap down the skin with help of knife
  • Transfer the inner soft pulp to a bowl .... now u can just mash it or what i like to do is with a hand blender puree it along with the garlic
  • Next add some green chillies ( opt ) then in a small pan heat the oil add pinch of asofoetida (opt) then add cumin seeds let it crackle add red chilly powder n turmeric powder n then mustard seeds let it crackle for a minute as the oil is in the right temperature
  • Immediately pour it on the puree of egg plants add salt to taste stir and then add yogurt ( try to add Greek style if available ) or just strain the yogurt before adding making sure to remove all excess water from it
  • Garnish with some cilantro n ready to be served !!!!
  • Enjoy :-)
  • Tip : If u like u can add 1/2 onion finely chopped in the tempering just to add extra flavor ...
  • U can also add some chopped spare mint ...
  • Any suggestion or comments are most welcome

    Made this tonight. It was very flavorful and I loved the spices in it. Great recipe! I had to omit the asofoetida. Cannot find it in Portugal.
