Eggplant Bharta Pizza with Sun-dried Tomato Chutney


1 package ready made pizza dough (available at natural food markets)
1 medium eggplant
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, diced small
1 green chili, finely diced
½ teaspoon red chili powder
½ teaspoon garam masala powder
¼ teaspoon turmeric powder
1 tomato, diced small
½ cup cooked green peas
Salt to taste
Chopped cilantro for garnish

Brush eggplant with 2 tablespoons oil and roast it on a gas burner over medium heat. Frequently turn the eggplant upside down, until fully roasted. Or puncture the eggplant in several places with a fork, brush it with 2 tablespoons of oil, and roast it whole and unpeeled on a baking sheet at 350°F until it’s soft and starting to collapse.
Once done, hold it under cold running water or place in a bowl of water to cool. Peel off the blackened skin and mash the flesh.

Heat oil in a pan and add onion, tomato, and green chili and fry over medium heat until the onions are a light golden brown.

Add red chili powder, garam masala, turmeric and salt and stir. Add tomatoes and cook until tender.

Add green peas, mashed eggplant, and stir well. Let cook for 5-7 minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

Roll pizza dough onto an oiled sheet tray and top with eggplant bharta. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until the crust is slightly browned.

Sun-dried Tomato Chutney
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes
1 piece fresh ginger, about 2 inches long, peeled and coarsely chopped
1 clove garlic
¼ cup fresh coriander leaves
1 tablespoon agave or sugar
1 teaspoon tamarind or lemon juice
sea salt to taste

Hydrate the sun dried tomatoes as per packet instructions, if not hydrated already.
Pulse all the ingredients in a food processor until it forms a smooth paste, using a little water if needed.
Adjust seasoning to taste.

Top pizza with Sun-dried Tomato Chutney and garnish with cilantro. Serve hot
