Classic Ajapsandali Recipe

Classic Ajapsandali is a popular Georgian vegetable stew that is made with a variety of seasonal vegetables and spices. The dish is similar to ratatouille, but with a unique blend of Georgian flavors and ingredients.
To make Classic Ajapsandali, you'll need a variety of fresh vegetables, including eggplant, bell peppers, tomatoes, onions, and garlic. The vegetables are diced and sautéed in a pan with olive oil until they are soft and tender. A few spices, such as coriander and paprika, are added to the pan to add flavor and depth to the dish.
Once the vegetables are cooked, they are simmered together in a tomato-based sauce until the flavors meld together and the sauce thickens slightly. The dish is traditionally served hot, but can also be enjoyed cold as a refreshing summer salad.
Classic Ajapsandali is a versatile dish that can be served as a main course or as a side dish to grilled meat or fish. It can also be enjoyed on its own, with a side of crusty bread or rice to soak up the flavorful sauce.
