Steamed eggplant yogurt salad


This raita is made with steamed eggplant, it is a delicious cold salad to serve as a side dish with rice, flat breads and bread or serve as a dip with vegetables.

1 eggplant
2 to 3 tbsp yogurt
1 green onion or scallion chopped
1/4 tsp salt to taste
1/4 tsp pepper to taste

Cut the eggplant into 4 and steam in a steamer for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and put it in a plate. With a fork mash it and leave it to cool before adding the yogurt. When steamed the eggplant will be about 4 to 5 tbsp.
Beat the yogurt, chopped green onion, salt and pepper with a fork. Add the cooled mashed eggplant to the yogurt mixture.

  1. Lovely salad with eggplant. I make it by roasting the eggplant and extracting the pulp.
