    Glad you enjoyed  the dish. I'll try leaving the skin on next time I have young eggplant. This dish could be enhanced with either anchovies or asian salted fish. Byron

  • I oved the elegant simplicity

    I oved the elegant simplicity and interesting textural contrasts of this dish. I was given homegrown eggplants. I didnt peel them and they were perfectly cooked in 20 minutes. I added a teaspoon of my favourite condiment to the sauce as I didnt have fresh chilli. It's garlic chilli paste available in Asian Supermarkets. A great standby.

    Going back for seconds now!
