    Persian Cook's Note:

    Bademjan means “eggplant” in Farsi (otherwise known as Persian, the language spoken Iran). This stew works fantastically with Persian rice (Polo) and is a dish which can be modified for vegetarians very easily. Such comfort food–everyone will enjoy this dish.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Peel the eggplant and cut it lengthwise in half. (Cut it in half again if you are using a large eggplant.) Lightly salt and leave it to drain in a colander for half an hour. Rinse and pat it dry with paper towel, or leave to dry it overnight. (Eggplant will ‘sweat’ when salted, don’t be scared!).
    2. 2
      Fry the eggplant in oil until it is lightly colored. Remove and keep to the side.
    3. 3
      Put 2 tablespoons of oil in a deep pot and fry the onion, adding the meat, pepper turmeric and tomato paste. Sauté until the onion is lightly colored.
    4. 4
      Add water and let it simmer until the meat is tender. Add more water if its required (if the dish doesn’t look liquidly then it will need more water).
    5. 5
      When the meat is tender, add the eggplant, sugar, lemon, and salt to taste. Let the mixture boil for another few minutes. Taste and adjust the seasoning.
