Ingredients[edit | edit source]

Procedure[edit | edit source]

  1. Slice eggplant and cover in salt. Leave for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Rinse salt away, then squeeze until almost dry (this removes sourness).
  3. Cut eggplant into chip-sized pieces and fry in oil.
  4. Add onion and cook briefly.
  5. Add all other ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes.
  6. Serve with freshly cooked pasta.

Notes, tips, and variations[edit | edit source]

  • The amounts of the various ingredients are not really important. Experiment and adjust to taste.
  • It is often better to prepare the vegetables the night before as this gives time for the flavours of the chili pepper, garlic, and herbs to diffuse through the mix.
  • Spiral pasta is a good choice, as it holds the sauce to itself.

Warnings[edit | edit source]

  • Always wash your hands after handling chili peppers. Be especially careful not to touch your eyes.
