Baba Ghanoush

Egg plant dip

Recipe by rabz of Dhaka, BD

The most authentic Baba ghanooj you can make.

Ingredients vegetarian 4 servings

    • 1 medium egg plant ( baygun) grilled.
    • 2 cloves crushed garlic
    • 2 tbsp Tahina ( Arabian sesame seed paste).
    • 2 tbsp olive oil + 3 tbsp olive oil
    • 1 tsp salt or adjust to your taste.
    • 1/2 lemon's juice (approx 1/4 c ) 
    • 1 tbsp Samaq (dried Arabian berries)
    Samaq can be found in Arabian food stores.


    1. Grill the Baygun over your stove or in the grill until nice & tender from all sides, A nice smell will definitely spread into your house & u will know your baygun is done.
    2. take it of fire or out of the grill & take off the skin while it's still hot.
    3. Put all ingredients in a food processor except the 3 tbsp olive oil & dry berries.
    4. Process all & make a nice & creamy dip
    5. Serve at room temp after drizzling it with olive oil & Samaq from the top.
    6. You can eat this with hot naan, Pitta bread, bread sticks, cut veg.
    * some people like their "baba Ghannoj" to have chunky bits so they don't process it for too long. 




    To my viewers you can cook the egg plant (all sides) over open fire if you don't have a grill.
