Turkish Dishes: Eggplant Pilav

And the husband food blog for today: 

One of my favorite vegetable is eggplant. I love everything cooked with eggplant.

Pilav+eggplant+yoghurt = A delicious lunch for me!

This dish is called: Eggplant Pilav

Preparation :35minutes
Cooking:30 minutes

What you will need:
1 big eggplant
2 table spoon salt
2 table spoon olive oil
1 cup rice
2 cups of water
1 table spoon black pepper powder

How to cook:
  1. Cut eggplant in small squares then soak in a warm water with salt for 15 minutes so it can release its bitter taste.
  2. Put 1 cup of rice in to warm water with 1 table spoon salt for about 15 minutes.
  3. Dry the eggplant pieces with tissue and add into hot oil pant and fry until it turns pinkish.
  4. Rinse the rice and cook with 2 cups of water in a pan.
  5. Laslyt, mix the cooked rice and eggplant in a separate cup and top with black pepper.

Afiyet olsun!
