 Categories: Indian, Sauces
      Yield: 2 Servings
           Stephen Ceideburg
      1 md Eggplants (1 pound)
    1/2 ts + tb mild vegetable oil
    1/4 ts Mustard seeds
    1/4 ts Cumin seeds
    1/2 c  Chopped onion
    1/8 ts Turmeric
      1    Fresh hot green chile,
    1/2 c  Peeled, chopped tomato
    1/4 ts Curry powder
    1/2 ts Salt, or to taste
    1/2 ts Sugar
           Chopped fresh cilantro,
           -for garnish
  This expensive restaurant dish is easy to make at home. Although it is
  found in both northern and southern India, it is prepared very
  differently in each region. The following recipe is the northern
  Brush eggplant all over with 1/2 teaspoon oil. Preheat the broiler,
  prepare a charcoal grill or place the eggplant directly over a gas
  burner. Cook, turning occasionally, until the skin is completely
  charred and the pulp is soft, about 30 minutes. Let cool briefly.
  Slit open and scoop pulp out onto a cutting board. Chop coarsely.
  Heat remaining oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add
  mustard and cumin. When seeds pop (takes about 1 minute), add onion,
  turmeric and chile. Stir and cook 2 to 3 minutes. Add tomato,
  eggplant and curry powder. Reduce heat to medium, cover and cook,
  stirring occasionally, about 6 minutes. Season to taste with salt and
  sugar. Garnish with cilantro.
  Serve warm or at room temperature.
  Variation: In southern India, eggplant is roasted, peeled and allowed
  to cool. Yogurt (about 1 cup per 1-pound eggplant) is stirred in to
  make a creamy mixture, then the dish is seasoned with turmeric,
  mustard and plenty of fresh curry leaves. It is served as a cooling
  salad alongside spicy dishes.
