How to make it

  • Put eggplant in colander and sprinkle with salt.

  • Add herbs and coriander seeds. Cover the pan and cook gently for 40 minutes
  • Add tomatoes and taste. Then add salt and pepper as desired
  • Cook for another 10 minutes.
  • Vegetables should be a little soft just not mushy
  • Remove herb sprigs
  • stir in torn basil
