2 large eggplants -- unpeeled, diced.
2 large ripe tomatoes -- diced.
30 milliliters oil -- (or clarified butter)
2 large onions -- finely chopped.
10 milliliters salt
5 milliliters black pepper

Preparation / Directions:

1. In a large frypan, saute the onion in the oil until it is translucent. 2. Add the spices, and stir for 1 minute. 3. Add the eggplant and tomato, stir well, and cover. Reduce heat, and simmer until vegetables are mushy (about 1/2 hour). 4. Remove the lid, and continue cooking until most of the liquid evaporates (about 15 minutes).

It is eggplant, onions, and tomatoes, but not in the usual way. In this recipe, the vegetables are cooked to mush, with only a small amount of tomato - just enough to flavor it.

The genuine Indian version of the recipe adds various Indian spices; try of fresh ginger, of turmeric, of garam masala for a more authentic Indian flavor. Difficulty : easy. Precision : no need t
