  • 1/4 cup Olive oil (extra required for serving)
  • 1/4 cup Lemon juice
  • 2 Tomatoes
  • 1 Onion
  • 4 Garlic cloves crushed

  • 1 tsp Cumin powder
  • 1 tsp Red chilli powder
  • Pomegranate seeds and thick cream for garnishing

Recipe Preparation

  1. Bake or broil the eggplant over an open flame before peeling so that the pulp becomes soft and it has a smoky taste.
  2. Once it has completely blackened from outside, take it off the flame. Cool it. Then peel it and squeeze out all the pulp, discarding the skin.
  3. Add crushed garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, cumin, chilli powder, sesame seed paste, finely chopped onions and tomatoes to the eggplant paste.
  4. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly and mash well to obtain a creamy paste.
  5. Garnish it with cream and pomegranate seeds.
My Tip: Sesame seed paste is optional
