    How to cook Baingang Bhart - eggplant caviar

    I fry the eggplants for this dish directly on the flame of a gas stove.

    Previously, you can lightly grease them with oil, but not necessarily.

    I keep it in tongs over medium heat and turn it over every couple of minutes.

    Fry until the skin is evenly charred and the eggplant softens.

    Put the eggplant in a bag and use it to scrape the skin or, after cooling slightly, peel the gloves off.

    If desired, fry the tomato in the same way.

    The secret of smoked aroma is not to try hard and leave pieces of skin here and there.

    Chop onion, garlic, chili, ginger, tomato and herbs finely.

    Turn the eggplant into a not very uniform mashed potatoes, by hand or with a blender.

    Heat 1-2 tablespoons in a deep frying pan over medium heat. vegetable oil (I prefer olive or coconut), add spices and cook, stirring, 1 minute to reveal the aroma.

    Add onion first, after a couple of minutes ginger and garlic, then chili and tomato.

    Cook, stirring, for about five minutes.

    Add the eggplant puree, mix, season to taste.

    If desired, you can add peas and chopped cilantro.

    If used, add yeast flakes at the end to a slightly cooled dish to preserve vitamins.
