Ajapsandali - Traditional Georgian Eggplant Stew
Updated: Aug 12, 2020
As promised here, today I'm sharing a Georgian eggplant dish - Ajapsandali. I know it's hard to pronounce, but believe me, it's one of the best eggplant dishes you can make. If Ratatouille and Caponata had a spicy sister it would be Ajapsandali. This Ajapsandali recipe is quite spicy, has a stew-like consistency and is a hearty and delicious meal. Ajapsandali is loaded with vegetables and can be a side dish or a meal on its own.
Ajapsandali uses variety of seasonal vegetables like eggplant, onions, garlic, bell peppers, habanero or jalapeno peppers, tomatoes, carrots, potatoes, cilantro and parsley. Additionally, Ajapsandali is a one pot meal that requires minimal clean up. Probably the most time consuming part of making Ajapsandali is slicing all the vegetables, but believe me it's worth it. Another reason I love making Ajapsandali is because it's super healthy and great for clean eating.
