Roasted Eggplant saladEggplant salad is very nutritious and the healthy recipe for diabetic people….. I had added kidney beans in it to make it protein rich …..

 

Ingredients

½ cup  dry  kidney beans or canned kidney beans (you can also used fresh kidney beans)

250gms eggplant cut into ½ inch pieces  (any purple or violet color variety of eggplant)

1 potato peeled and cut into ½ inch pieces (optional)

1 onion finely chopped

2 cloves of garlic finely chopped

10 -15 mint leaves finely chopped (optional but it gives very refreshing flavor)

1 tomato

2 teaspoon lemon juice

2 teaspoon olive oil(optional)

1 teaspoon freshly crushed black pepper

Salt to taste

Directions

  1. Soak the dry kidney beans in water drain the water wash it properly…cook it  in 2 cups of water and salt in a pressure pan for 20 minutes … it should become soft …..Remove the water if it’s there… I generally use this water in any soup… if you r using fresh beans directly cook in salt water no need of soaking overnight it takes 10- 15 minutes to cook…. If you r using canned beans you can directly use it …
