Bouranee Baunjaun ( Eggplant with Yoghurt Sauce )
Yield: 6 servings

4 medium eggplants (1 kg total)
oil for frying
2 medium onions; sliced
1 green pepper; seeded, sliced
2 large ripe tomatoes; peeled
1/4 ts hot chili pepper
1/4 c water

2 c chakah (drained yogurt)
2 garlic cloves (or more)
salt to taste

Cut the stems from eggplants and leave peel on. Cut into slices
1 cm (1/2-inch) thick. Spread on a tray and sprinkle slices
liberally with salt. Leave for 30 minutes, then dry well with
paper towels. Pour enough oil into a deep frying pan (with lid to
fit) to cover base well. Fry eggplant until lightly browned on each
side. Do not cook completely. Lift onto a plate when browned.
Add more oil to pan as required for remaining slices. As oil drains
out of eggplants on standing, return this to the pan and add onion.
Fry gently until transparent. Remove to another plate. Place a
layer of eggplant back into the pan. Top with some sliced onion,
green pepper rings and tomato slices. Repeat using remaining
ingredients and adding a little salt and the chili pepper between
layers. Pour in any remaining oil from eggplant and onion and add
the water. Cover and simmer gently for 10-15 minutes until eggplant
is tender. Combine chakah ingredients and spread half of the sauce
into base of serving dish. Top with vegetables, lifting eggplant
carefully to keep slices intact. Leave some of the juices in the
pan. Top vegetables with remainder of chakah and drizzle vegetable
juices over it. Serve with Kabaub and Lawash (flat bread).
