Eggplants generally don’t have much nutrients but are high in fibre because of which we must include them in out diet. Since, I am not an ardent fan of eggplants,so it would be the last vegetable which I would pick from the vegetable vendor or store. However, since years, I have been finding ways to cook them so I can eat it happily. This is one such dish which will definitely make you happy.
