Category: Vegetables

 Ingredients List

  • 1 md Eggplant, cut into 1" cubes
  • 2 c Fresh or frozen green peas
  • 4 tb Ghee
  • 1 tb Coarsely crushed coriander
  • 1/2 tb Coarsely crushed cumin seeds
  • 1 ts Turmeric
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 3 Whole hot chilies
  • 1/8 ts Asafetida
  • 3 Sprigs fresh coriander
  • 2 c Stock


Place eggplant into the bottom of a heavy pot. Sprinkle in the fresh peas,
dot with ghee & add the remaining ingredients. Bring the liquid to a boil &
cook for 4 minutes. Reduce the heat to low, partially cover & cook for
about 30 minutes, shaking the pot from time to time to prevent sticking. If
the stock is evaporating too quickly, add some more & reduce the heat. When
almost all the stock has evaporated, add the frozen peas (if you are using
them instead of fresh) reduce the heat further & fry until a crust has
begun to form on the bottom of the pot & the eggplant has begun to char.

Remove from the heat & let sit for 3 to 4 minutes. Gently stir in the crust
& serve immediately.
