Makes about 2 cups of Mutabaal

Main Ingredients

2 large eggplants

3 tbsp tahini

2 cloves garlic, minced

Juice of 1 lemon

2 tbsp olive oil

RK Salt and RK Pepper to taste

Chopped fresh parsley for garnish


To roast the eggplants, preheat the oven to 400°F (200°C).

Prick the eggplants with a fork and place them on a baking sheet. Roast for 30-40 minutes until the skin is charred and the flesh is soft.

Let the roasted eggplants cool, then peel off the skin.

In a bowl, mash the eggplant flesh. Add tahini, minced garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mix well until you achieve a smooth consistency.

For enhanced flavor, let the Mutabaal chill in the refrigerator for a couple of hours.

Drizzle with olive oil and garnish with chopped fresh parsley before serving. Serve with warm pita bread, Soorya Parotta or fresh vegetables.
