Şakşuka - The Turkish Delight

Such a yummy aubergine recipe, you can eat it simple, with yoghurt, or cheese, or fried eggs...

I found this recipe at

2 aubergines, 2-3 peppers, finely chopped, 2 tomatoes, peeled and cubed, Tomato purée/paste, 2-3 cloves garlic, crushed or finely sliced, Olive oil

Peel alternate strips off the aubergines lengthwise to create a stripey pattern. Chop into chunky cubes, sprinkle generously with salt, and leave to soak in a bowl of water for about half an hour.
Rinse the aubergine chunks, pat dry, and then fry in a light olive oil until golden brown. Stir in the finely chopped peppers and the tomatoes and cook over a gentle heat. When these start to break down and disintegrate, add the tomato puree/paste and garlic, and continue to simmer for a few minutes. If the tomatoes aren’t especially juicy then feel free to supplement with a little water. You should be aiming for a really moist and juicy consistency.
Leave to cool. Serve with fresh bread and yoghurt on the side.
