    White aubergine is found in various parts of Chattisgarh. I wasn't familiar to this white beauty until I myself went to shop for vegetables in a local market near to my house and was amazed to see white aubergines. Anticipation built up and I just couldn't resist myself from asking the lady vegetable seller that how it is cooked. Though she told me a very basic recipe of it which she probably makes herself, but somewhere I thought that this would taste even great when teamed up with pickled spices.
