Ingredients used in Spicy Eggplant in Ginger Tamarind Sauce
• Eggplants/brinjals (baingan) - 1 lbs.
• Tamarind (khatai) - 1 1/2 numbers.
• Ground cloves (loung) - 1/2 teaspoons.
• Flaked coconut - 1/2 cup.
• Black mustard seeds - 1/2 cup.
• Cayenne pepper - 1 teaspoons.
• Ground coriander (pisa dhania) - 2 teaspoons.
• Ground cinnamon (pisi dal cheeni) - 1/4 teaspoons.
• Unsulphured molasses or brown sugar (gur) - 2 tablespoons.
• Minced garlic (pisa lehsan) - 1 1/2 teaspoons.
• Salt - to taste.
• Vegetable oil - 3 tablespoons.
• Boiling water - 1/4 cup.
1) Put the tamarind in a nonmetallic bowl. Add 1/4 cup boiling water and let it soak for 30 minutes.
2) Mash the pulp and extract as much juice from it as possible. Pour all liquid into a bowl, and save the fibrous residue for making the sauce.
3) Slit the eggplants lengthwise to within 3/4 inch of the stem end so that each eggplant remains in one piece. Measure out the spices and place them right next to the stove in separate piles.
4) Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large frying pan or skillet over medium-high heat for 1 minute. Add the garlic and fry for 30 seconds.
5) Add the coriander, cinnamon, and cloves; fry for 15 more seconds. Stir in the coconut and cayenne pepper; continue frying, stirring, until lightly toasted (about 2 minutes).
6) Turn off the heat and stir in the salt, tamarind liquid, and molasses, and mix well. Stuff the eggplants with the spicy coconut mixture.
7) Secure them by wrapping thread around them. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the same pan over medium-high heat.
8) When it is hot, add mustard seeds. Keep a pot lid handy, as the seeds may spatter and fly all over.
9) When the seeds stop spattering, add the eggplants in one layer. Fry the eggplants, turning them often, for 3 or 4 minutes.
10) Reduce heat to medium or medium low and cook them, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes or until they are soft and cooked through. Turn off heat.
11) Transfer them to a serving platter, pour Ginger-Tamarind sauce over them, and serve immediately.
