    Cookie Jarvis's Note:

    My kids will eat just about any stew I set in front of them as long as it is served on top of rice. I revised an Arabic recipe, normally served as a casserole, to be created totally on the stovetop. It can be served on rice or eaten on a plate using pita bread. Fried eggplant with tomatoey sauce and cinnamon and other spices will please all your senses.

      This was WONDERFUL. Made exactly as written and enjoyed it over jasmati rice. Wonderful aroma while cooking and the flavor was sweet yet richly savory. A definite keeper recipe ~ DH enjoyed it very much too. Thanks for posting. Made for Spring PAC 2010!
