Eggplant is so full of nutrients and is a very filling vegetable as well - great for people who are just getting used to a vegetarian diet and who are missing the 'chunky' texture of meat in a dish. This makes either a very nice vegetarian/vegan main dish or a nice side to compliment an East Indian or Middle Eastern main dish.

This is a very nice side dish to accompany any Indian meal or you can have it on its own like I did for my lunch. One thing I would say is you must like eggplant to like this I love eggplant and you do get a lot of the lemon tang. I make a dish very similar to this recipe393169 but is made with mushrooms and at the end of cooking you sprinkle with some besan flour (chickpea) I think this would be great with some flour to thicken the wee bit sauce that you get in the bottom of your wok. I did like this and will be using this recipe when I make our Saturday night curry as a side dish it will fit in nicely. Thank you for posting. Made for a rainbow of colour the diabetic forum March 2011.
