Eggplant is painful

Tonight I am making Persian food for the weekend, as I’ll be in a cabin & won’t have access to all of my nifty cooking supplies. A trick that my mom told me about was to cook a whole eggplant in the oven, then take off the skin and use the eggplant in bademjaan (eggplant, chicken, tomatoes, split yellow peas over rice). That way you don’t have to fry the eggplant!

I used a fork to see if it was done, but I had forgotten to cut a hole in the skin before I cooked it, so it exploded on me. I now have 3 burns on my hand and one on my leg. I’ve put medicine on them but it is really just classic “Sholeh”. *sigh*

My first thought was “I should blog about this.” Yeah…

  1. Dang, Sholeh…so sorry to hear. I’m glad that you shared, cause I didn’t know that eggplants shared properties with explosives…and now I know. I also gots to apologize for being whack and off the grid somewhat…I’ll be on the scene more these days…Boom!

    *healing prayer*

  2. oh man, i too didn’t know eggplants exploded.
    what a crazy way to find out.
    hope those burns heal quickly!!!
