Roasted Eggplant in Yogurt (Yogurtlu Patlican Kozleme)

This is a Turkish dish, this recipe is from the Turkish Cookbook.  This dish looked so simple and interesting that I had bookmarked it. 

This is my entry for the BM #50, theme Bookmarked recipes.

1 Big Eggplant / Brinjal
1 Cup Yogurt
2 Cloves garlic -  minced

1 Teaspoon Cayenne pepper or Chili flakes ( I used cayenne pepper)
1 Teaspoon Spearmint flakes ( dry mint crushed)
Salt to taste
For the Butter Pepper sauce

1 Tablespoons Butter
3 Flakes Garlic - crush it with a pinch of salt
1/4 Teaspoon Pepper - crushed


Pierce the eggplant and roast them till the skin starts peeling off.  Let eggplant cool before handling. 
Peel off the skin and mash it with the knife.

For the Butter Pepper sauce
Heat butter in a pan add the garlic and pepper stir in for a second. The sauce is ready.

In a separate bowl, combine yogurt, minced garlic and salt. Mix well. Stir in the mashed eggplant to the yogurt sauce. Mix well.  Drizzle the butter-pepper sauce on top and a pinch of cayenne pepper and spearmint flakes. Serve this chilled.

I enjoyed this dish as my dinner, had it with garlic bread.  The butter pepper sauce  makes this dish yummy. Do give this a try.
