Bangan ka Bhurta (Indian Eggplant)
1 eggplant
1 teaspoon oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 Roma (plum) tomatoes, chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 sprigs chopped fresh cilantro

Preheat the oven broiler. Place eggplant in a roasting pan, and broil 5
minutes, turning occasionally, until about 1/2 the skin is scorched. (The
eggplant may also be scorched in the open flame of a gas burner.)

Place eggplant in microwave safe dish. Cook 5 minutes on High in the
microwave, or until tender. Cool enough to handle, and remove skin, leaving
some scorched bits. Cut into thick slices.

Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat, stir in the onion, and cook until
tender. Mix in eggplant, and tomatoes. Season with cayenne pepper, salt,
and black pepper. Continue to cook and stir until soft. Garnish with
cilantro to serve.
