Nutritions

Preparation

  1. Roast the Brinjal to char its skin using an oven or gas burner.
  2. Let it sit to cool down and then remove the stem and the skin. 
  3. Also remove excess seeds if it has too many as seeds make it bitter.

  5. Add lemon juice, Tahini sauce, red chili powder and olive oil and use the whisker to mix it well. 
  6. Cover it and let it sit in the fridge for 2-3 hours.
