Eggplant with Tomato – Badimjan dilchaklari

  As eggplant is grown in abundance in Azerbaijan during summer , so it is a common vegetable there. This dish is served as breakfast or as salad or an appetizer.

Requirements :

4 eggplant

2 large tomato

3 garlic cloves

Fresh coriander leaves / Dill leaves

Vegetable oil


Black pepper powder

Method :

 Wash and slice the eggplant length wise.

Blanch the tomatoes and remove the skin.

Chop the tomato into small pieces and sauté on a pan till the water evaporates.

Add the little oil and sauté for two minutes , add in the crushed garlic , salt and pepper .

Fry the eggplant pieces till golden brown on the griddle with little oil.

Arrange the fried  eggplant pieces on the serving plate and place the tomato mixture on each piece.

Sprinkle chopped coriander on top.

Serve immediately with fresh bread.

Note :

I used  the small eggplant available , ususally in Azerbaijan they use the large purple Aubergines.
