How to make Brinjal Focaccia | Aubergine Focaccia

  1. Add sugar to warm water. Stir to dissolve and add yeast. Cover and keep till frothy.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flours, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 2 tablespoons oil
  3. Add yeast mixture and knead the dough. Push dough with the heels of the hand and pull it back with fingers. Knead like this for 5-6 minutes till you get a soft and supple dough.
  4. Transfer dough to a greased bowl. Turn around so that it is evenly coated with oil. Cover and keep for 1 hour or until double.
  5. Cut the brinjals into 1/4-inch thick slices. Sprinkle salt. Toss well. Keep them on a tilted plate to drain excess water. Cover and keep for 20 minutes.
  6. Press the brinjal slices between the folds of paper napkin till dry. Keep aside
  7. Line a baking tray with a parchment sheet.
  8. Punch the risen dough. Divide into 4 parts. Roll out each piece into a rectangle or oval (about 9 x 5 inches)
  9. Place on the parchment sheet. Brush liberally with olive oil. Spread grated cheese. Place brinjal slices (tightly packed). Drizzle olive oil on the slices. Sprinkle grated cheese. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon herbs mixture.
  10. Bake in the preheated oven at 190 degrees C for 20-25 minutes till the edges become golden.
  11. You may bake two to three focaccia at a time depending on the size of your baking tray.
  12. Serve with soup.

My Tip:

Add more cheese for a cheesy focaccia. Use a herb mix with garlic powder.
