WHAT DOES BABA GHANOUSH MEAN IN ENGLISH?

baba ghanoush

Baba ghanoush

Baba ghanoush is a Levantine dish of cooked eggplant mixed with onions, tomatoes, olive oil and various seasonings. The Arabic term means "pampered papa" or "coy daddy", perhaps with reference to its supposed invention by a member of a royal harem. A popular preparation method is for the aubergine to be baked or broiled over an open flame before peeling, so that the pulp is soft and has a smoky taste. Often, it is eaten as a dip with khubz or pita bread, and is sometimes added to other dishes. It is popular in the Levant. A similar dish, but with mashed aubergines and without other vegetables, is known as mutabbal in the Levant but is called baba ghanoush in Egypt.
