On the condiments genre, we are visiting Romania today. While looking for a do-able condiment, that not only fit in today’s post, but also for our dinner/breakfast, i came across zacussa, a vegetable spread that is so so easy to make, similar to our normal tomato chutney. But it not only uses tomatoes, but also eggplant and red peppers.
I have oven-roasted the veggies here, if you are confident enough to do it directly on the stove or if you have a grill , then go ahead and do the grilling and charring on it and have fun.
The condiment paired so well with toasted bread and for dinner, we had it with our normal ragi dosa, it was so delicious and none could make it out that it is made of eggplant and peppers!
The only spice element here is the peppercorns, nothing else, but that renders an amazing taste and crunch to the spread. Try it and you will definitely love it!!
