Baigan Choka (Eggplant finished with hot oil)

Baigan is another word for Eggplant and Choka is a Hindi word meaning to finish a dish with hot flavored oil. The recipe was taken from here and cut in 1/3 as I only had 1 eggplant left. The other recipe says to grill everything, but I don't have that option so everything was put into a pan until it was charred slightly and heated through.

  • 1 eggplant, charred and cooled
  • 8 plum tomatoes, charred and cooled
  • 1/4 onion, charred and cooled
  • 3 cloves of garlic, charred and cooled
  • 1 jalapeno
  • 4 TBSP olive oil
  • 3 cloves of garlic
1)Trim the stems off the eggplant and chop it.
2) Mash the eggplant and the tomatoes together.

3) Add the garlic, onion and, jalapeno and mix.
4) Heat the olive oil in a pan.

5) Add the fresh garlic and let it simmer for 15 seconds.

6) Serve with naan or other bread.
