Baba Ghanoush

Written By FewMinute Wonders on Monday, April 8, 2013 | 9:39 PM

Since I roasted 2 eggplants, I made the sutta kathirikka chutney and the other I decided to make baba ghanoush. It is super popular and is served in most restaurants. If I see it on the menu, I always love to order them for an appetizer. It is usually served with pita bread, regular toasted bread, lavash bread or pita chips. It works well with all these combinations. These days they sell them at farmers market and I decided to make some at home this weekend. It is super easy to prepare once you have the roasted eggplant ready. If you have a gas stove it can be done in a jiffy. Else the oven works fine, but takes over an hour to cook the eggplant. Here is the recipe I made this weekend.


Measuring Cup and Spoons
Cutting Board


Rosted Eggplant - 1
Garlic - 1 clove
Crushed Pepper as per taste
Green Chillies - 1/2 seeded
Tahini Paste - 1/4 cup
Olive Oil - 2 tbsp
Parsley - 1 tsp chopped
Lemon Juice - a dash
Chilli Powder - 1/4 tsp for garnish


1. Toss all the ingredients into a blender except the olive oil and chilli powder. Give it a blend to a smooth paste. Sprinkle some chilli powder and drizzle olive oil. Serve with warm bread.
