How to Make Eggplant Pickle

  • Pierce eggplants with a fork, wrap in paper towels and place in a casserole dish. Cook on HIGH for 10 minutes or until soft.
  • Hold on to the stem and peel skin from the eggplants, then remove stems.
  • Mash flesh and mix with 1 cup vinegar to prevent eggplant from discolouring. Keep aside.
  • Soak tamarind in hot water for 10-15 minutes until softened.
  • Rub with fingertips to separate pulp, then press through a sieve and add to the eggplant.
  • Combine another cup of vinegar, mustard seeds, coriander seeds, fennel seeds, peeled garlic cloves and ginger and blend to a smooth paste.
  • Add paste to eggplants with chilli powder, pepper, salt and remaining vinegar and ladle into sterilised jars.
  • Seal and store in a cool place.
