Broiled Summer Guniea Squash


baked eggplant n zucchini slices soaked in vodka with potato, onion, tomato & carrot curry filling;

Unfortunately, I forgot to type up what i did when i did it. So, i don’t remember the spice quantities for the curry. Said so, it should be like any other curry and to your taste.

Another unfortunate news, i am currently unable to upload the pics ūüė¶

How did I manage to think about this? Or did I think?

I was looking to make eggplant rollitini without eggs and cheese. Disappointed with the recipes I found, I just made this. I thought to make the curry with the vegetables at hand for the filling.  Towards the end I thought about adding some plain cooked rice to the filling mixture; but by then it was too late.

Ingredients:

  • 1 eggplant sliced lengthwise
  • 1 zucchini¬†sliced lengthwise
  • 2 med potato
  • 1 onion
  • 1 tomato
  • 3 carrots sliced to coins
  • cumin seeds
  • mustard seeds
  • turmeric powder
  • chilli powder
  • dhana-jeeru powder
  • garam masala powder
  • salt
  • oil
  • 2 curry leaves

Garnish ingredients:

  • shredded coconut
  • chopped cilantro
  • lime juice

What did I do?

  1. sliced eggplant lengthwise as thin as I could (I managed six)
  2. coated in the oil and put it in the oven to broil
  3. soaked baked/broiled eggplant in vodka
  4. sliced zucchini lengthwise as thin as I could
  5. coated in the oil and put it in the oven to broil

Filling:

  1. Heated the oil
  2. Added cumin seeds and mustard seeds when oil was hot enough so that they crackled when added
  3. Added onions and browned them
  4. Added potatoes and carrots and cooked them covered (stirring occasionally) till tender
  5. Added chopped tomatoes and simmered for 5 more minutes

Cooking is done; now serving time: I tried three different ways

  1. lay the eggplant slice on the plate, layer the zucchini slice, layer the curry filling
  2. same as 1 above; but deck it up with another layer of eggplant and the filling
  3. same as 1 above with little less filling and then roll the eggplant

Garnish:

  1. Garnished this with raspberry, cilantro, shredded coconut, and/or lime juice

Njoyed it!!!
