Roasted Egg Plant with Bulgarian spicy salt

12 May

Bulgaria is one of the good holiday destination in Europe.  My hubby had been there for a Business Trip and become fond of Bulgarian salads and steaks. One of the common spice they use is Balkan Salt. It is normally taken with bread or bacon. He got few packs to try it at home. I have used this salt on steamed vegetables it was tasting superb. So I tried it with Egg plant,  the end result was really good.


  1. Egg Plant  – 1
  2. Balkan Salt to season egg plant. (Balcon salt is a mix of Salt, Red pepper, Corn flour, Fenugreek, Balkan Savory)
  3. Oil – 2 Tsp


1. Cut the Egg plant in to 0.5 cm – 1 cm thick slices length wise. Apply the balkan salt on both the sides.

2. Add oil to the pan and shallow fry the slices for approximately 2-3 minutes on both sides.

Tip : Serve it warm as a starter or side dish.

    Balkan salt sounds yummy! I will have to pick up some next time I am in Bucarest. Grilled eggplant is the best!
