This eggplant and scallion salad recipe is the bomb dot com. I am a die-hard eggplant addict. I do not know what is it that I like about it, but if the eggplant is in any food that I am eating, it is a fiesta food for me. This particular recipe has a perfect balance of acidic, mildly spicy (because of the garlic and scallions), and rich in flavor.
The very first time I ate these dumplings were in my mom’s kindergarten where the cook makes delicious, from scratch meals every day. Although I have heard of Hamir Hasip (in literal translation it would mean Dough Sausage) before, as it is an Uzbek dish, it was never made in our house. When I tried them for the first time, I really fell in love with their simple but delightful taste. These beef dumplings do not have a big variety of ingredients in it, which, in my opinion, make them appealing to little children. You can certainly dress them up with a spicy or sweet chutney, sour cream or plain yogurt. I like to enjoy it with a little bit of caramelized onions in ghee, sour cream and a side of pico de gallo.
