ABOUT Aubergine Meze RECIPE

Aubergine is a vegetable I have got to enjoy only recently. In the past, aubergines used to have some bitterness which has now been bred out of them and we no only need to salt and drain them either. This aubergine meze is made slightly differently to an aubergine curry even though it uses most of the usual spices. Cooking it this way seems to give the aubergine a fantastic almost fruity taste.
