From the book "Roast Chicken and Other Stories" by Simon Hopkinson. I left out the currants just because I did not have them on hand and reduced the amount of oil.

Recipe Ingredients for Spiced Eggplant Salad

1 eggplant, unpeeled (approx 1-1/4 lb) Eggplant
5 Medium Tomatoes
1 large Onions
2 clove Garlic
1 serving Coarse Kosher Salt
1 serving Ground Cumin
1 serving Season-It All Spice
1/4 tsp Cayenne
1 oz Mint
1 serving, raw Cilantro
4 tbsp Oil, Sesame
0.25 cup FAGE Total 0%
1 serving The Original Hot Sauce

Recipe Directions for Spiced Eggplant Salad

  1. Cut the eggplant into 1/2-inch cubes; place in a colander and sprinkle with 2 tsp. salt. Mix together with your hands and leave to drain for 30 to 40 minutes.

  2. Heat 1/4 cp of olive oil in a pan and fry the onions until golden. Add the tomatoes and spices. Stew for 5 to 10 minutes, then stir in the garlic and take off the heat. (Hopkinson says: "I often find that adding the garlic too early on in any cooking process causes its flavor to disappear completely." I agree!)

  3. Blot the eggplant dry with paper towels and then fry in the remaining 1/4 cup olive oil in your largest frying pan (get the oil hot first--smoking hot) and cook until it's golden on all sides and cooked through. Add the eggplant to the tomato mixture and add the fresh herbs. Adjust the seasoning to taste. Serve with a dollop of yogurt and hot sauce.
