Recipe Ingredients

1   Brinjal - (aubergine/eggplant) (large)
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlCrushed green chillis
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlCrushed fresh ginger
  Salt - to taste
1 1/2 cups 355mlFresh yogurt
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlJeera - (cumin seeds)

Recipe Instructions

(There is no english alphabetical letter for this) Bringal flavoured yogurt, usually a side accompaniment to a meal.

Wash the bringal and dry. Oil lightly and place on baking tray or foil under the grill. Keep on low heat and grill turning every few minutes until the whole brinjal has cooked.

When cooked insert sharp knife into it and slit lenghtways. Scoop out inside (doesnt it smell great?) into a bowl.

Let the mixture cool for about 10/15 minutes and then add the yogurt, green chillis, crushed ginger, salt and the jeera seeds. Mix well and serve as a side accompaniment to a meal. Its smokey flavour is just the right thing for a hot summers day.

Granny's tip: if you use a rolling pin and crush the cumin seeds a little they taste better and release a nice aroma).
