When Monica Bhide’s book Modern Spice came out earlier this year bloggers and food editors went ga-ga. Despite how appealing every recipe looked, it was this one for eggplant that I just couldn’t quit thinking about.
So, when I found myself alone in the kitchen with an eggplant, I gave it a try. But, instead of using Bhide’s skillet method, I cooked my eggplant on the grill and glazed it with her pomegranate, honey and ginger sauce as it was becoming soft and pillowy. The result: one full lady alone in the kitchen without an eggplant. Seriously. It was my entire meal.
Since it’s eggplant season, tell me about your favourite way to enjoy this wonderful vegetable?
