 Betinggan, call it what you like, it's delish!!! I can eat cholesterol-rich foods like butter that I love. Eggplant counteracts cholesterol-rich food so we eat EGGPLANT RECIPES at least twice a week. Here's how i cook them at home aside from cooking them with tomato paste. I did posted last time here eggplant with tomato paste, its fried version:)

1 kilo eggplant
oil to fry
4 cloves garlic
1 bell pepper ( i use hot pepper)
1 sweet bell pepper
1 tbsp cumin seeds
salt to taste


wash the egplant, pat them dry. slice them into round and not so thick,not so thin just like in the picture below. when almost brown, remove from pan and strain or place in a towel to absorb the remaining oil.

meanwhile, make the condiment. beat the peppers,garlic,salt and cumin altogether in a mortar and pestle. take the mixture and brush them into each eggplant by your hands....make sure your hands are cleaned :) and presto eat them with egyptian baladi bread, pita bread, chappati,roti or tamiz in saudi arabia....We oftenly eat them in breakfast. They are found in the streets of egypt along sidewalks vendors or the restaurant....hmmmm, I love the smell of it ♥
