Boranis are vegetable salads – often made with leafy greens such as spinach, or with aubergine slices, as here – covered with a seasoned yogurt sauce. They are loved from Turkey to Iran to Afghanistan, Pakistan and India. Chopped tomatoes or a tomato sauce may be added and that is what I have done. The two sauces make for a gorgeous, mouthwateringly good dish.
You can make the tomato sauce two days ahead, then cover and refrigerate it until needed. Bring it to room temperatur
