  • cup of green peas
  • teaspoon basil leaves
  • teaspoon paprika
  • 5-6 fresh mint leaves

  1. Roast the eggplant by putting it directly on the flame of a stove. Do so evenly for all parts till the skin turns black and begins to flake easily.

  3. Heat oil in a pan. Add the garlic and onions and sauté till onions are golden brown.
  4. Add the rest of the ingredients, except the macaroni and the eggplant.
  5. Cover and cook till the tomatoes are tender.
  6. Add the eggplant, along with ¼ cup water and cover to cook for another 4-5 minutes.
  7. Once the eggplant is tender, mash and blend all the ingredients well and sauté on high heat for a few minutes.
  8. Remove from heat, mix in the macaroni and serve hot.
