Baba Ghanoush

This bizarre sounding dish is a awesome Mediterranean dip. I adore Middle eastern food. The flavour's are mild yet robust.
The basic preparation of this dip is similar to Baingan Bharta -(Smoked Eggplant Curry).
Do give it a try.


  • 3 aubergines Roasted and peeled
    2-3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
    1 tbsp tahini
    1/2 chopped onion 
    2-3 tbs lemon juice
    1 tsp ground cumin
    1-2 tbsp olive oil and little extra to pour on top
    Chili flakes to sprinkle on top
    Finely chopped parsley (optional)

    Roast the aubergines over a open flames until the skins are blackened and the flesh soft. Cool and 
    peel.Put all the ingredients along with the roasted aubergines in a chopper/blender and blend till a coarse paste.Dish it out and pour some olive oil and garnish with chili flakes and chopped parsley (optional)
    You can serve this with toasted bread, salad sticks.. or simply use it as a sandwich spread.

    This post is off to Serve it -Blended on Oh Taste and Seeand to Krithi.
    And to.... Sorisha & Surabhi for their event Fusion Food.
