Ingredients: (Serves 6)

1 large eggplant/aubergine

1/2 medium onion

1 green pepper/capsicum

1 tomato

4 whole garlic cloves

3-4 habanero peppers or regular green chillies (left whole with stem removed)

1 tablespoon olive or other cooking oil

Spices:  1 tsp cumin, 1/4 tsp turmeric, 1/2 tsp chilli powder, 1 level tsp salt, 1/2 tsp crushed chilli peppers

 

How to:

1.  Wash and slice the eggplant/aubergine then cut into quarters.  Soak in a bowl for 10 minutes and wash thoroughly. Drain when done.

2. Prepare the rest of the ingredients:  Slice the tomato into about 8 slices, slice the onion into fairly thick slices and slice the green pepper into fairly thick slices.

3. In a bowl, mix together all the vegetables and all spices as indicated above. Add 4 peeled (whole) garlic cloves.

4. Add 1 tbsp of oil and mix well.
