What to Serve with Baba Ganoush Recipe | Baba ghanouj

My favorite way to serve baba ganoush is as a snack/ appetizer or light lunch with fresh salad veggies and pita bread.

Alternatively, stuff it into pita sandwhich or serve it alongside a simple salad like my Kala chana salad or Waldorf salad.

Step by step instructions and pictorial presentation to make Baba Ganoush | Baba Ghanouj

 

Clean and wash brinjals. Brush oil all over it. Place brinjals on stove top on full flame.

Keep the sides flipping so that it gets charred from all sides till the flesh inside gets nice and mushy.

 

Once its tender, slit it from one side and stash garlic flakes inside it and place it back on high flame. It takes about 8 to 10 minutes to get done.

Once done, take them out and cover it with bowl.  Let it get cooled down enough so that you can handle them to peel the skin off.

Remove the black charred skin of the eggplants. Remove  and peel the garlic also.
Transfer the flesh of the eggplants to a chopper or a blender.

We don’t need to paste it, we just need to grind it to a coarse texture. Just give one or two pulses, and it should be done.

 

Add the hung curd as needed and  rest of the ingredients apart from lime juice and salt, and give the pulse 3-4 times.

When done, take it out into the serving bowl, add the salt and lime juice as per taste. The salty and savoury taste should not predominate it’s smoky flavor.

So add a little at first and do the taste test. Drizzle some olive oil and garnish with the fresh coriander leaves and pomegranate pearls. It’s ready to be served.

Simply dip the pita in baba ganoush and enjoy wholesome and fresh snack. It actually is sometimes weekend lunch for me.

Simply pair it with some salad, fresh Lemonade or iced tea.

Enjoy!

Notes

1. Using yogurt in this recipe is completely optional. You may skip it or use the vegan yogurt to make vegan version.

2. You can make this one day prior to serving and store it in the fridge.
