    Hello every one. I had an eggplant dish at a restaurant in Seattle called .Kabul's. I have never liked eggplant before and I can not remember the name of the dish. I do not even think that I could ever pronounce it correctly. The dish was sauteed slices of eggplant that was topped in a spicy wonderful tomato sauce and then garnished slightly with thin lines of a sauce. I do not know if it was yogurt or sour cream. I would really appreciate if I could get a recipe similar to this one. I have cravings for this dish and no way to satisfy them. I got the feeling that this was a typical or well know dish for that area of Kabul. I have looked all over the internet for anything resembling it. Thank you for your time and assistance in this matter and I so look forward to your responses.

    I just wanted to thank you for your time and work in replying to my question. I enjoyed the recipes that you found regardless of the fact that they were not the recipe for which I was looking. I plan on trying a couple. It is people such as yourself that make this site so precious to me so thank you again and I do appreciate you and what you do.

    HI livingstonfran

    Kubul is in Afghanistan and, technically, outside out of our "jurisdiction" lol. But I found this on a blog and it might what your looking for:

    Burani Bonjon
    Serves 4

    1 large eggplant (about 8" long)
    200 ml. canned diced tomatoes, drained
    4 garlic cloves, crushed
    4 tablespoons olive oil
    1 teaspoon turmeric
    1 teaspoon powdered cayenne
    salt & pepper to taste
    Aleppo pepper (for garnish)
    Seer Moss (for garnish, see recipe below)

    Slice the eggplant into coins. Lightly, but liberally salt both sides and allow to rest on a cooling rack over a cookie sheet for about an hour, to draw out the bitterness. Rinse the salt off, and pat the slices very dry.

    Saute the crushed garlic in half the olive oil in a large, heavy-bottomed skillet until fragrant, the remove the garlic to the side. Add the (dried) eggplant slices to the skillet and brown both sides, cooking in batches if necessary, and adding the remaining oil as needed (eggplant soaks up oil pretty fast).

    Reduce the heat and add the tomato, garlic, turmeric, cayenne, salt and pepper. Simmer until the eggplant is very tender. Serve warm, or at room temperature (not hot!). Drizzle with Seer Moss and sprinkle with chopped cilantro and Aleppo pepper.

    Seer Moss: Garlic Yoghurt Sauce

    This makes a lot of sauce, but you will love it as a vegetable dip, or as an alternative to Tzatziki, so make the whole batch.

    1 cup plain yoghurt
    3 - 4 cloves crushed garlic
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    2 tablespoons minced fresh mint
    2 tablespoons olive oil
    pinch salt

    Combine and let chill for at least an hour to allow the flavours to meld, but remove from fridge 15 minutes before serving, to take the chill off.

    Oh thank you, thank you, thank you. This is the closest recipe that I have seen that looks like what Walid served me. I can not thank you enough. I have the eggplant and I am going to get the yogurt and fresh mint and I'll be making it tomorrow.

    I'd differ with Annacia's recipe on one point:
    Instead of the sauce listed in that recipe, I'd use this one:
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Meat Sauce for Borani Badenjan (from http://asiarecipe.com)

    1 Yellow Onion
    1 lb Ground Beef
    1 tsp Black Pepper
    16 ounce can Tomato Sauce
    1 tsp Crushed Garlic
    1 tsp Coriander
    1 tsp Salt
    1 1/2 cups Water

    Grind yellow onion, and one-half of a cup of water in a blender.
    Pour this mix into a frying pan with ground beef, and cook until the meat is browned. Add one more cup of water, crushed garlic, salt, freshly ground coriander, black pepper, and tomato sauce to the meat and cook over a medium-low heat for 20-25 minutes.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    So, cook the eggplant, top it with this sauce, and drizzle with the yogurt sauce.

    Did you eat that dish with bread or rice? There is a popular eggplant dish from Persia as well that is my favorite. You pour it over rice and eat it.It's called khoresht e bademjan and I make this dish all the time, it's awesome.

    Here's my recipe
