About the Recipe
� 2 eggplants
� 2 tbsp. olive oil

� 2 garlic cloves, minced
� 1 red bell pepper,
� 1 red chili pepper, finely
� 1 tbsp. lemon juice
� 1 tsp. smoked paprika
� 1 tsp. sweet paprika
� 1 can chopped tomatoes
� 1 tbsp. tomato puree
� 2 tbsp. chopped parsley
Wash the aubergine and cut them into � inch slices. Season on both
sides with salt and put aside for about 20 - 30 minutes, until the
eggplant collects water.
In a large pot heat 1 tbsp. of oil and fry the onion for 2 mins, then add
the minced garlic and cook together for another 1-2 mins.
Add the chopped red pepper and finely chopped chili peppers. Fry
for about 4 minutes stirring constantly.
Dry the eggplant with paper towels and cut into cubes. Add it to the
pot and add another 1 tbsp of oil. Fry for approx. 10 minutes, in the
meantime mix now and then.
During the frying, add lemon juice, season with both paprika powder
and freshly ground black pepper (you do not need to add salt
anymore because the aubergine has already absorbed the salt).
Add in the chopped tomatoes and tomato concentrate, stir and bring
to a boil.
Cover and cook for another 15 minutes until the eggplant is soft. If
necessary, you can add a few tablespoons of water to reach a
desired consistency of the sauce.
