1 large eggplant, large dice
3‐4 tomatoes, large dice
1 large onion, red or yellow, small dice
1 tsp cumin seeds (whole)
1/2 tsp (or more) garam masala
3 Tbsp chopped cilantro leaves
3 Tbsp chopped mint leaves
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
4‐6 oz olive oil
3 Tbsp raisins
Salt and pepper

Saute onions in a little olive oil; add garlic, garam masala, and cumin seeds just as the onions finish cooking. When the spices and garlic are fragrant, take the pan off the heat and place onions, garlic, and spices in a bowl and set aside. Return pan to heat and add olive oil; allow oil to heat a bit before adding eggplant (if your pan is too small, you may need to sauté the eggplant in batches and add finished batches to the bowl of onions). Allow eggplant to brown slightly, stirring it regularly to keep it from sticking. When all the eggplant is done and added to the onions, add a little oil to the pan and add the tomatoes, sautéing them until they release their liquid. Let this liquid evaporate a little—not totally!—and then add the tomatoes to the onion mixture. Add the raisins at this point, while the mixture is hot, so the raisins can plump up. When the mixture has cooled slightly, stir in mint and cilantro and season with salt and pepper. Allow to cool before serving. Can be made a day or two ahead; serve as a salad course or as an accompaniment to main course dish or as canapé. Read More...
