Bhagara Baingan – Spicy Stuffed Eggplant/Brinjal/Aubergine (GF, V)
￼ I must confess that the eggplant is not one of my best loved vegetables. In fact, it is only now that I’m slowly developing a liking for it and even then it’s mostly in dishes that I have cooked because I know how I like it!
As children, one of the rules that got strictly enforced at the table by our father was that we had to eat whatever our mother cooked for the day without refusing it. We did get served smaller helpings of food we didn’t particularly like, but if either my sister or I said we didn’t like something the punishment was an extra helping of it! And we didn’t get excused from the table till we had eaten it all because wasting food was not encouraged.
