Persian Food - Khoreshte Bademjan (Eggplant Stew)

Letting the eggplant 'sweat'.

YUM...onions and turmeric...

I grill the eggplant on my pancake griddle without a drop of oil - the eggplant is perfect and the food isn't greasy - as eggplant can act as a bit of a sponge.

The finished food - delicious.

If you want our recipe, let me know. We probably make it a bit differently as foods can vary by family and city of birth apparently. We make it like Mano's mom. Here is a link to a great Persian food blog, and also a link to a fabulous Persian recipe book that we use a lot! Mooshe jan! (Enjoy!)

I'd like to try some persian cooking! I made the pitas you posted a while back and they were delicious but they puffed up a lot so they didn't really look flat like pitas. Is that how yours turned out?
