VEGETABLES IN MAYONNAISE SAUCE
Vegetable dishes, served cold, are popular in Georgia. In this family recipe we show how to prepare a delicious dish of eggplant, peppers and onions in a spicy mayonnaise sauce.
Ingredients: 2 eggplants, 2 red peppers, 1 large white onion, 1 level tsp of hot red pepper, 1 level tsp of dried coriander, 1 level tsp of blue fenugreek, 1 level tsp of dried marigold, salt (amount dependent upon personal preference), 6-8 cloves of garlic, fresh coriander (for garnish), 100 grams of mayonnaise, 50 ml of boiled, cooled water and 7 tbs of oil.
Preparation: Slice the peppers, eggplant and onions. Add 7 tbs of oil to a pan and heat in an oven before adding the sliced peppers, eggplant and onion. Cook on a high heat until the eggplant browns (up to 15 minutes).
Whilst the onions, eggplant and red peppers are frying, add the spices, salt and garlic to a mortar and carefully squash with a pestle for about 2 minutes.
Add the fried eggplant, peppers and onions to a mixing bowl.
Add 100 grams of mayonnaise to the spices/garlic/salt mixture and mix thoroughly with a spoon. When it is mixed, slowly add and mix in 50 ml of boiled, cooled water.
Add the mayonnaise/spices/garlic/salt mixture to the fried eggplant, peppers and onions. Allow to stand for 30 minutes.
Serving: Serve cold. We garnished ours with fresh coriander.
