Pindjur is a relish of red peppers, tomatoes, aubergines and different spices. Vegetable chunks combined with spices give this product an appetising flavour, appealing colour and pleasant aroma. It is a dish from Macedonian cuisine.
There are several varieties of the recipe and this is the one I used.
4 kg ripe tomatoes
10 dag hot peppers
5 kg roasted red peppers
1.5. kg roasted aubergines
20 garlic cloves
bunch of fresh parsley leaves
25 dag cloves
4 tablespoon of salt
8 dl vinegar
1 dl oil
Peel off tomatoes, slice them and add chopped hot peppers. Add sugar, salt, vinegar and oil. Cook it for 1.5 hours on low fire to reduce the liquid.
Roast peppers and aubergines - in oven or even better grill them. Peel them off. Slice them into chunks. Add chopped parsley leaves and garlic.
When the first mixture is done, add the second one and cook it all for another 20 minutes. Pour the mixture into glass jars and cover with the cellophane. Make sure the jars are warmed up in the oven before being filled up with Pinjur.
