Recipe credit: Unknown
3 bunches dhania
1 ball garlic
1 tblsp green chillies
2 tblsp whole jeeru - ground
2 tblsp peppercorns - ground
1/2 cup vinegar
1/2 cup lemon juice
Liquidise above
Add:
2 tblsp coconut
2 tblsp ground almonds
1 tsp salt (or to taste)

Masala eggplant:

Slice eggplant into even slices
In a bowl, mix:
Red chilli powder
Turmeric
Cumin powder
Coriander powder
Flour (almond flour for the lowcarbers or can omit altogether)
Salt

Method:

Dip each slice of eggplant into the flour mixture to coat well.
Prepare an oven tray with oil
Create stacks by sandwiching eggplant slices between layers of green chutney

Optional: Crumble paneer or feta cheese over the chutney layers
Oil the top slice of eggplant slightly
Bake on 180 till done (be careful not to burn). The skin of the eggplant will be crispy but the flesh will be soft and delicious. Once done, top with yoghurt, crushed red chillies and fried green chillies (prepared in the airfryer) and dhania.

Note: you may use any green chutney you prefer
