Recipe Ingredients for Eggplant & Yogurt Dip (Borani-e bademjan)

2 lb eggplant
1 tablespoon olive oil
4 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2/3 cup yogurt, drained
4 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice

Recipe Directions for Eggplant & Yogurt Dip (Borani-e bademjan)

  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Rinse the eggplant and prick it in several places with a fork to prevent bursting.

  2. Place the eggplant in the center rack of the oven, with a baking sheet underneath the rack to catch the drippings. Bake for 1 hour. A more traditional cooking method is to grill the eggplant for about 40 minutes, turning frequently, over a charcoal or wood fire that has burned down to embers.

  3. Remove the eggplant from the oven, place it on a cutting board, and let it stand until cool enough to handle. Remove the eggplant skin with your hands and chop the flesh.

  4. Transfer the flesh to a mixing bowl, add the remaining ingredients, and mix thoroughly. Adjust seasoning to taste.

  5. To garnish:

  6. 1/4 teaspoon ground saffron threads, dissolved in 2 tablespoons hot water (optional)

  7. 1 tablespoon drained yogurt

  8. Fresh mint leaves

  9. Transfer to a serving dish, garnish with saffron water, drained yogurt, and mint leaves and serve hot or cold with lavash bread. This recipe may be made up to 24 hours in advance and stored in the refrigerator. If the dip is refrigerated for more than an hour, remove it from the refrigerator 10 minutes before serving.
