  1. Quarter the eggplants and then cut them into large chunks (1 ½ inches at the widest part).
  2. Place in a big bowl, cover with cool water, and add the salt.
  3. Place a plate on top to keep the eggplant submerged for 20 minutes, then drain, and pat dry (don’t rinse.)
  4. Preheat the oven to 190°C (375°F).
  5. In an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat, heat 2tablespoonof oil.
  6. Working in 2 batches, brown both sides of the eggplant until golden and then set aside(no need to cook through).
  7. Add more oil to the same pan and add the onion and sauté for 2-3 minutes, stirring continuously.
  8. Add the garlic, celery, and red pepper, lower the heat, and cook until tender for about 5 minutes.
  9. Lower the heat to low, then add the spices, canned tomatoes (and juices), Bayara raisins, salt, pepper, Bayara chil
  10. Add the eggplants and give the pan a good shake so the stew levels. It should have a stew-like consistency. If it seems dry, add a little water.
  11. Drizzle some olive oil, cover the skillet tightly, and place it in the warm oven.
