"A very nice side dish of yogurt and eggplant. You can eat it poured on top of rice or eat it with chapatti. Even on its own its delicious but a bit spicy."

  1. Char the skin of the eggplants by roasting them on all sides on a skewer over the open flame of a gas burner; or, blacken them under an oven's broiler. When thoroughly burnt, place in cold water to cool, then peel off the skin of the eggplants.
  2. Cut up the eggplant and place into a large bowl. Mash well with a fork or potato masher. Stir in the yogurt and onion. Season with cayenne pepper, salt and pepper to taste. Mix well, and spoon into serving dish. Sprinkle with serrano pepper and cilantro before serving.

I skipped the serrano peppers, but instead added canned diced tomatoes, some olives and garlic. It was very nice, albeit a little bit too tangy for my taste, hence, 4 stars. Otherwise, it is a r...

The recipe I follow is very similar to this one, I just add half a bunch of finely chopped cilantro (stems and leaves) and lemon juice to taste. I also take one small onion fry it golden brown ...
