Direction

Step-1

Slice the eggplant by length and hollow out the centre, leave some flesh (traditionally whole eggplant are used ans fried to cut down calories remove the hollowed out part and keep aside). After hollowing out the weight of eggplants to be used for the dish must be 80g

Step-2

Take 2g butter, add to nonstick pan on high flame, add the hollowed eggplant, cover the lid and cook for 10 minutes, I also added some splashes of water so that eggplant doesn't burn. (you can also roast in oven for 30mins at 400°F)

Step-3

Remove the eggplant from the pan, keep aside

Step-4

In the same nonstick pan, on medium flame add 3g butter +40g onion and saute for 5 minutes. Add 5g garlic and saute for 3-4mins.

Step-5

Add tomato puree, salt as per taste and saute for 5mins. Add cumin powder 5g, paprika powder 5g and saute for 3 minutes.

Step-6

Add lean goat mince 80g, add 30ml water and mix it well. Cook for 15-20mins.

Step-7

Add parsley 1tbsp chopped. Switch off the flame. Season with salt if needed.

Step-8

Spoon the goat mixture in hollowed out eggplant.

Step-9

Spoon 25g of Greek yoghurt over the stuffed eggplants. Sprinkle the 10g pomogranate seeds over the stuffed eggplant.

Step-10

Garnish with mint leaves.

Step-11

For vegan and vegetarian options seitan mince or soya granules can be used. Instead of yoghurt vegans can use tahini sauce. Macros will differ accordingly.
