We exchange exactly this yoghurt, give a vegan alternative and thus have Banjan Borani as a vegan version on the plate.

for the aubergines you will need:

for the tomatoes with onions:

for the refreshing yoghurt sauce:


Prepare vegetables and prepare yoghurt sauce:

  • Wash and slice the eggplant.
  • Wash and halve the cherry tomatoes. (de-seed normal tomatoes and roughly chop them)
  • Peel onion and cut into strips.
  • Peel and finely chop the garlic for the tomatoes.
  • Peel and finely grate the garlic for the yoghurt sauce.
  • Rinse and roughly chop the cilantro and mint.
  • For the sauce, stir the garlic into the yoghurt with half the coriander and the mint. Stir in salt and chilli flakes (to taste). Put aside.

Prepare eggplant:

  • Mix olive oil with turmeric.
  • Heat the pan and spread the aubergines in it. Drizzle oil over and fry the aubergines, tossing occasionally. If the aubergines absorb the oil, that’s no problem, just keep frying.
  • When the aubergines are done, put the lid on and set aside.

Fry tomatoes with onions:

  • Take a second pan and heat the olive oil.
  • Fry the onion until translucent, then add the garlic and sauté briefly. Let caramelize for a couple of minutes.
  • Now add the tomatoes, a pinch of salt and turmeric.
  • Simmer for 2-3 minutes. The tomato will release water and the mixture will be mushy and the tomatoes will be soft.
  • In a small pan or saucepan. Heat 1 tbsp olive oil and stir in the chili powder. Remove from the stove immediately.

Arranging & Serving:

  • Spread the yoghurt on slightly deeper plates.
  • Arrange the aubergines on top. Spread the onion and tomato mixture over all the aubergines.
  • Drizzle over the chilli oil and garnish with the remaining coriander.
  • Enjoy your meal!
