Persian Eggplant dip ( kashk-e bademjan)

If you are eggplant lover, here is a wonderful recipe , and could be served as a veggied dish. Bademjan is eggplant/aubergine in Farsi and Kashk is a kind of yogurt whey. If you go to a Persian/Iranian restaurant you will see kashk-e Bademjan among the list of appetizer menue. However, this dish serves as an appetizer in a restaurant, but in Iran households made this dish for lunch or dinner as a main meal.
Kashk-e bademjan can be served warm or cold with Persian flat breads like Lavash or Taftun. This eggplant dip is easy to make and super tasty.
Kashk-e bademjan is one of the most popular Persian dishes. Can be an appetizer or main dish. Kashke bademjan is a Persian eggplant dip that is traditionally made with golden-fried or grilled eggplants and caramelised onions.


ٍEggplant dip

1 large eggplant
2 medium onions, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, mashed
1 tbsp ground walnuts
1 tbsp saffron water
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp dried mint powder
Salt – pepper powder to taste
Kashk ( whey) or plain yogurt


Skin eggplant off. Cut into half and grill it. You can fry it as well but I prefer to grill it because eggplant will have smoky taste. Heat the oil in the pan and saute chopped onions over medium heat for about 7 minutes or until slightly golden.


Heat the oil and sauté dried mint for 1 minute and set aside. Then, place grilled eggplant, fried onions and mint, minced garlic, ground walnuts, whey and spices in a blender and puree it. Taste and adjust the seasoning. Eggplant dip is ready now. Transfer it to a plate and garnish with fried onions and whey.

Hello everyone, my name is Rozina. I am Iranian with Azerbaijani roots. I was raised in Iran but I am living in Scotland. I am passionate about cooking and preparing meals for my family and friends. I tell them the story behind the meal, the pronunciation of their Iranian name and the spices that used in Persian cuisine. I am an archaeologist, photographer, a cooking teacher, and very interested to introduce Persian and Azerbaijani meals, desserts and beverages to people from different cultures, as I love to try food from all over the world. Iranian cuisine is a combination of rice with meat ( chicken, beef, lamb, fish, turkey), nuts, fruits, dried and fresh herbs and vegetables. Iranian food is a celebration of flavor, colour and spices such as: saffron, cinnamon, cardamom, turmeric, dried rose petals, dried limes, cumin, .... I share my recipes in Farsi/English along with step by step photos of preparation. I take all my own pictures. I have learned my traditional Persian and Azerbaijani recipes from my lovely mother, and she has learned from her mother. Over the years, I have experimented and learned more recipes. Some of my recipes are a fusion Western and Middle Eastern cuisine. Some are forgotten from Persian cooking tables and I try with posting and sharing those ones, to preserve them. All my recipes and pictures are property of rozinaspersiankitchen. I would be pleased if you would mention my site if you wish to use any of them. So, if you are interested to know about Persian /Azerbaijani food taste, you can try my website. I will be glad to hear your ideas about my recipes. :) Thank you for visiting my website.
