I came about this recipe years ago on a Gujarati television channel that my mum used to watch – unfortunately I don’t recollect whose recipe it is. But she has my immense gratitude cause we love this dish and it often makes an appearance on our menu. Honestly, I am not an eggplant lover unless it is in an olo/baigan bharta form. So, when I saw this recipe, I knew I had to make it cause its quicker than a bharta and equally delicious.

The addition of peanuts gives this dish a textural component while the yogurt adds a wonderful creamy tang to the recipe. And as you know by now how I love to add greens (spinach and makhana kadhi, jowar vada) in the traditional items that I cook, in this too I have added moringa leaves which in fact makes the mash even more delicious if that is possible!

The moringa tree is called a miracle tree for a reason. It is good for digestion, has 7 times more vitamin C than oranges and 15 times more potassium than bananas. The nutritional content is so high of these leaves that even pharmaceuticals have flooded the markets with moringa tablets, moringa powder, the extract to be taken daily as part of the diet.

In all, this recipe is definitely one for keeps. High on nutrition as well as on taste. And if you have someone in your family who isn’t a fan of eggplant, a suggestion: Don’t tell them what’s in the dish you have put up, let them guess. I bet they won’t be able to. And I say that with experience ?
