This weekend, I just wanted to do a simple little post with aubergines, it’ll come in handy, and it’s good, besides. We call them Tankina aubergines… why do we call them Tankinas and not just “spicy aubergines?” That’s because Tankina is the name of my wife’s friend, and they always treat us with these lovelies whenever we’re in Odessa… always to great cheers! I already did a post about them along time ago, but it wasn’t a step-by-step and detailed recipe…
- 2.5 kilos (5.5 pounds) Aubergine (Eggplant)
- 1.25 kilos (2.75 pounds) Red Capsicums (Bell Peppers)
- 75 grammes (>3 ounces) Hot red chilli peppers
- 75 grammes (>3 ounces) Garlic
- 125 millilitres (1/2 cup) vinegar
Chop up the capsicums, garlic, and chilli pepper roughly, and pass them through a food mill or put them in the food processor, mince them up roughly, and add the vinegar to the mass, and mix it in thoroughly.
You can cut up the aubergines as you will, this time, I did it this way…
Fry them up, you don’t need to use a lot of oil, and season them with salt and pepper.
After they’re done, slather the prepared sauce over them, and place them carefully in a bowl, but do note that in my experience these hold for a week at most. However, don’t worry; they’ll be all eaten up quickly…
Cover the bowl with clingfilm and let it sit at least overnight in the fridge…
After you do that, you’ll begin to notice that the value of the average number of openings of the icebox increases exponentially.
These go well with chilled vodka and dill pickles, and you can also add garlic, dill, horseradish, ginger root, and hot red pepper….
It’s really just a simple appetizer; your glass will try to jump into the dish with it, it’s no trouble at all to whip up… so, we added crisp toasted bread rounds and accompanied it with herring on black bread.
Well, now that the spicy eggplants are ready, you can safely begin with a jigger of chilled spirits, bringing forth memories of those who gave you life…
Приятного аппетита. Bon appétit. You’ll enjoy these aubergines.
