Default Smoked Eggplant and Yogurt (sooo tasty)

Smoked Eggplant and Yogurt

1 medium eggplant, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup lightly salted water
1 1/2 cups plain regular or low−fat yogurt
1 small bunch green onions, diced
1/2 bunch cilantro, diced
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon paprika
1 piece charcoal
1 − 5x5 inch piece aluminum foil
1 tablespoon margarine or shortening

In a pot over medium heat, add the eggplant and water; cook
until tender and the water evaporates. Mash the eggplant so no
large chunks remain. Allow to cool completely.
In a large bowl, add the yogurt, mashed eggplant, green onions,
cilantro, pepper and salt; mix well.
To smoke the salad, heat the charcoal over open flame until gray
and reddish in color. Place the piece of foil in the eggplant
salad (make room in the center for the foil). Place the hot charcoal
on the piece of foil in the bowl. Add the margarine on top of the
charcoal and cover salad bowl immediately. Allow to smoke for
10 minutes; remove charcoal.
Chill the salad in the refrigerator and garnish with fresh chopped
cilantro and a sprinkle of paprika.
