Eggplant Stacks with hot & cool Sauces

To continue with the yumminess from yesterday I made dry fried eggplant stacks with two delicious sauces. Both wonderful but very different... which one do you like best?

Eggplant Stacks with Hot and Cool Sauces
Makes 2 large serves
1 medium eggplant
  • Slice eggplants in 0.5-1 cm rounds
  • dry fry on a good non stick pan (or griddle if you want the nice lines) until tender and golden
  • be patient, undercooked eggplant isn't so yummy
  • when done keep covered to retain heat & cook another batch
  • whilst frying in batches make sauces
Hot Sauce
Makes 2 serves
aesofatida 1/8tsp
1/2 tsp chili
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp tumeric
8 cloves
3 tbsp tomato paste
1/4 tsp cardamon
2 tsp white vinegar
1 tsp tabasco
1/2 cup stock
1/2 cup warter
pepper to taste
  • toast spices (dry fry until fragrant)
  • add tomato paste and cook for 2 mins
  • add liquid ingredients- vinegar, stock, water, tabasco
  • simmer until sauce thickens (approximately 3 mins?)
Pea, Coriander, Lime + Mint Sauce
Makes 4 serves
2 cups peas (frozen)
1 cup stock
1 cup chopped fresh coriander
1/4 cup chopped fresh mint
Juice of 1 lime
Zest of 1 lime
  • defrost peas (leave out or pour boiling water over them)
  • chop herbs
  • zest + juice lime
  • combine all ingredients
  • blend to a smooth consistency
Back to the Eggplant Stacks
  • Assemble cooked eggplant
  • layering with sauces
  • chop + sprinkle with fresh coriander
  • enjoy!
Today is one of those days that you wish would just end. I have an assignment to finish while the plumber is playing the drums on the shower pipes/tiles/wall because they're leaking into the apartment downstairs. Fun? Yeah no...

Hope you're all having wonderful days,

  1. Yum what beautiful stacks! I love eggplant stacks :) Both sauces sound lovely :)

  2. These look amazing! You little creative star, you. I've just planted some eggplant in my veggie patch :)

  3. my mum makes something similar for me when I am home, its like my favorite meal like ever, but being a student means I can't afford to make it myself. But anyway my mum makes the eggplant stack with sun-dried tomatoes, (feta), balsamic vinegar, spinach leaves and cous cous . We normally have it as a side to something or have tofu or other things etc... with it

    1. I totally have to show her these though!!! OMG THEY LOOK GOOD!!!
