Title: Char flavoured eggplant & green peas
Categories: Ethnic, Vegetables
Yield: 6 Servings
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 ea Whole hot chilies
1/8 ts Asafetida
3 ea 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.
