Cooking Char flavoured eggplant & green peas

1. Place eggplant into the bottom of a heavy pot. Sprinkle in the fresh peas, dot with ghee & add the remaining ingredients.
2. Bring the liquid to a boil & cook for 4 minutes.
3. Reducei the heat to low, partially cover & cook for about 30 minutes, shaking the pot from time to time to prevent sticking.
4. If the stock is evaporating too quickly, add some more & reduce the heat.
5. When almost all the stock has evaporated, add the frozen peas (if you are using them instead of fresh) reduce the heat further & fry until a crust has begun to form on the bottom of the pot & the eggplant has begun to char.
6. Remove from the heat & let sit for 3 to 4 minutes.
7. Gently stir in the crust & serve immediately.
