Fry the sliced eggplant in a frying pan – or brush them with oil on both sides and grill in the oven.
Fry the sliced onion in a frying pan until they turn to a golden colour. Then add the turmeric, black pepper, salt and red chili, keep frying for another minute or so. Remove from the heat. Drain the fried onion and lay them on paper towel to cool down, this way they should remain crispy.
Fry the slivered garlic in the same frying pan and the remaining oil. Do remember, garlic fries more quickly than onion.
In a smaller frying pan stir fry the dry mint with ¼ cup of oil for about 30 seconds. Set aside.
In a small pot put the eggplant, one tablespoon of the fried onion and garlic, salt, and 4 table spoons of whey (kashk). Mash these ingredients together and then add ½ cup of water. Let it simmer for 10 minutes and stir occasionally.
Place the mixture of eggplant in a serving dish. Garnish with the remaining onion, garlic, fried mint and the remaining whey (kashk). To finish, add the saffron drops on top.
Please note; Whey (Kashk) is usually supplied in form of a thick paste. To liquidise, add water and mix to a creamy texture.
Remember the Persian saying: “Every cooking hand has its own signatory taste.” Nadia Sajadi
