How to make Baigan Raita (Eggplant Yogurt Salad)

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  2. Wash the eggplant, cut off the stem part and cut it into half.
  3. Place the eggplant halves on the sheet, cut side down. Brush oil over the eggplant. Roast the eggplant in the oven for 25- 30 minutes.
  4. Remove the eggplant from the oven. The flesh should have becomes soft. Let the eggplant cool a bit. Peel off the skin. Mash the eggplant lightly.
  5. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan over low to medium heat. Add fenugreek and then mustard and cumin seeds. Add the chopped onion and stir fry till it becomes a bit soft.
  6. Add garlic and chopped chilli. Stir fry for a few seconds. Add the fried mixture to the mashed eggplant. Add yogurt, coriander and salt to the mixture. Mix well.
  7. Tempering:
  8. Heat oil in a small pan over low heat. It should not be smoking hot. Add the dry chilli and then chilli powder. Immediately pour the mixture over the raita.
  9. Serve the raita immediately or put it in the fridge to chill it.
My Tip: Add chopped grapes or pomegranate seeds (arils) to make the raita more appealing. Have it on its own as a salad.
