I love eggplants. My secret is that I am changing some of the original Uzbek and Tajik recipes because I find them fatty.
The nourishment in developing countries as Uzbekistan and Tajikistan depends on the number of family members. A very traditional family in Central Asia might be very large. The population in Uzbekistan has increased fairly steadily over the past 60 years, from around 6 million in the 1950s to almost 34 million today. To feed such big families is not that easy. Therefore, meals are highly-fat and in most cases unhealthy.
Fried Eggplants is one of my favorite dishes. I have changed the original Tajik & Uzbek recipe a bit, as usual.
Eggplant - 1-2 pc.
Tomatoes - 2 pc.
Garlic - 3 heads
Bell Pepper - 1pc.
Olive or Vegetable oil-50 g
Ground black pepper-on your taste
