In November I'm teaching an Indian cooking class so I thought I'd better bone up. With lots of eggplant in the garden and a cool, rainy day outside, this stewy, roasted eggplant dish is just the trick. Serve with nan or pita as an appetizer or over rice for a main dish. Eggplant is high in fiber and the breadth of herbs and spices offer flavor without a lot of fat.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 lb eggplant
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp brown or black mustard seeds
  • 1 bunch scallion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 lb mushrooms, quartered
  • 1 lb tomatoes, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 small, hot chili, minced
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/4 tsp ground tumeric
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 Tbsp cilantro, chopped

Preparation

  1. Preheat broil or grill. Prick eggplants with a fork all over and roast 30 minutes, turning every 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add mustard seeds and fry for about 2 minutes, until seeds begin to sputter. Add the scallions, mushrooms, tomatoes, garlic and chili. Cook about 5 minutes more, until vegetables soften. Stir in spices (chili powder through salt) and fry 3-4 minutes more.
  3. Cut the eggplant in half and scoop out the flesh. Chop roughly and add to the skillet mixture. Simmer for 5 minutes, until heated thoroughly. Serve with bread or over rice and garnish with fresh cilantro.
