Borani Banjan - Rumi Palace

Borani Banjan

Borani Banjan is one of the most popular dishes in Afghanistan. You can often find it served with  other dishes like Qabuli Palaw at many gatherings in the country. This delicious dish has become a staple on the menus of various Afghan restaurants in Australia. Although dishes similar to Borani Banjan may have been cooked in other neighbouring countries, our experience tells us that the way it is cooked in Afghanistan is much more delicious and tasteful than in other countries. Despite the eggplants being peeled and diced, the method used in Afghanistan creates a uniquely delectable taste. This taste is increased when it is served with the addition of yoghurt mixed with garlic.

Borani Banjan is also considered to be a vegetarian dish as no meat is used during the cooking process. It is a cherished vegetarian dish loved by many in Afghanistan. The star of the show is the eggplants as the main ingredient of this meal. These eggplants are combined with the aromatic blend of spices and ingredients. This delightful mixture is then simmered to perfection. The final touch is the addition of creamy yoghurt and a sprinkle of dried mint that adds a refreshing finish to the dish.

The Borani Banjan prepared in Rumi Palace is distinct from what you might find in other places. We have a special sauce made from tomatoes, garlic, onions, and our unique blend of spices that makes this dish special at our restaurant. After frying the eggplants until they are perfectly golden, they are gently simmered in this flavorful sauce. Once they are well-cooked and tender, they are placed on the plate where we previously spread yoghurt mixed with garlic. We sprinkle some tantalising herbs and fresher vegetables on top of it to make its flavour more tasteful.
