Recipe by Sackville

A recipe found in the UK's Independent newspaper. Would be great for a summer picnic or as a side to a barbecue.

I'm not sure why this has not been reviewed yet. This dish is fabulous. I made two adjustments: a) I used basil instead of coriander because I didn't have any, and 2) I cut the eggplants widthwise instead of lengthwise, as well as a bit thinner. Adding the basil did change the flavour but it merried well with the other ingredients. Next time I will plan ahead and use coriander. I'm adding this recipe to my Keeper File. This would make a great appetizer as well. I recommend that you try it at least once, and if you're an eggplant lover, you'll be hooked forever. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe, Sackville, and many happy travels. :-)
