if u make thina (thini) like in da reply above me, its also good to add some spices like paprika,cumin,tumeric -those are like basic when u make thina with lemon juice and garlic...
also goes good - a little nutmeg, or baharat, or zaatar/hyssop mix.
two more ideas:
- roasted eggplants with thina
you roast da eggplants on da stove or in da oven/grill,
i like it better on da stove...
you roast them whole, without peeling them or cutting da top.
if they're on da stove, roast until they're soft and da skin is
burned and crumpled. in da oven, roast until they're soft and
da skin gets deeper colors in it.
when they're ready, let them cool and then peel them and put
the soft inside in a bowl. add thina, lots of crushed garlic,
lemon juice, a few drops of olive oil and spices and mix them
it goes good with bread or pitot and it taste really good when
da eggplants are still hot...
- u can add thina when u make vegetables in da oven
i mean like potatoes, sweet potatoes, onions, tomatoes,
cauliflower, eggplants, unpeeled garlic cloves and all kind of
u cut them in to big pieces, mix them with olive oil and spices,
add some bay leaves, cover them and put them in da oven.
after a while when they're close to being ready, take them out.
mix in a bowl thina and water, to make da thina really thin.
pour it all over da vegetables and put them back in oven
without da cover and bake them until they're ready.
its really good...
