SATSIVI WITH VEGETABLES

Satsivi (Georgian: საცივი) is a thick paste made from walnuts and served cold (‘Tsivi’ means ‘cold’ in Georgian). It is used in a variety of meat (usually chicken and turkey), fish and vegetable dishes. In this recipe we show how to make satsivi with a delicious combination of vegetables.

Wash and prepare the cauliflower. Add to a deep pot of salted water and boil for 20 minutes. Drain using a colander and add to the bowl containing the eggplant, peppers and onions.

Preparation (walnut paste): In the traditional recipe, new walnuts are crushed and then the walnut oil extracted by hand. The extracted oil (usually about 2 tsp) is poured onto the dish before serving. This adds additional flavor. The process of extracting the oil is long and strenuous. We did this when preparing the dish but it is not absolutely essential and the process described below omits this step.

Grind the walnuts and garlic together (we used a meat grinder) and add to a mixing bowl. Add 1 tsp of dried blue fenugreek, 1 tsp of dried marigold, 1 tsp of dried coriander, 1 tsp dried hot red pepper, and salt (amount dependent upon personal preference)

Spices and Walnuts - Copy

Mix thoroughly.

Adding Water to the Satsivi Mixture

Keep adding a little water until the paste has a consistency like the one in the picture below.

Serving: Pour the walnut paste onto the vegetables and allow to stand for at least half an hour before serving. We garnished ours with fresh green coriander, sliced hot green pepper and pomegranate seeds.
