Kashk Bademjan is a Persian dish,kashk means whey and Bademjan is Brinjal.It is served as a starter item which is served with either grilled flat bread or normal flat bread.I had it in our local Persian restaurant Neda,after having it I googled the recipe ,found a video and tried it at home today.The main ingredients which gives a different taste is Dry Mint and Kashk.Here goes the recipe.
Persian Eggplant:2(Slice length wise)
Dry Mint:2 spns
Kashk:2 spns(I used Sadaf brand concentrated whey and diluted it with water)
1.Heat a tawa on flame,when hot put the sliced eggplants and drizzle some oil over them and fry them till golden color on both sides,when done take them and put aside.I used a grilled pan to fry the brinjal.
2.Take another pan,add oil,when hot add the finely chopped onions a
nd crushed garlic,fry till onion turns brown color,now put the fried brinjal and add water to the pan till the brinjals are covered under water.Add salt and pepper taste,turmeric powder,mix well and cook the brinjal smooth,covered for 15-20 mins on medium flame.
3.After 15-20 mins,remove the lid and mashed the mixture to smooth using a potato masher or simply your hands.mix well and fry for 3-5 mins.Take it to a plate.
4.Heat Oil in pan,when the oil is hot add the dry mint and fry for 2 mins now put this fried mint on top of the brinjal mixture and finally garnish it with diluted Kashk and served with a flat bread.
Mix well before serving.
I served it with normal chapathi and it tasted too good.
