Satarash is a vegetable dish popular in the Balkans. This is how we like it, but don't be surprised if you find many different recipes for it because there are a lot of variations from household to household. For example, someone might not add rice and add eggplant. Someone would use more tomatoes. You'll rarely see chickpeas or tofu in satarash recipes but I like to add them to improve the nutrition value of the dish.
