EGGPLANT PIZZA

In Trinidad, when we think about or hear the word ‘eggplant’ (more popularly called bhaigan) it’s usually bhaigan choka or curry bhaigan and aloo (potato) that comes to mind but this different way of preparing the bhaigan is actually pretty delicious!

Eggplant pizza is a yummy snack or side dish that the family will be sure to enjoy!

Here is the recipe:

    Assalaamu alaikum – Thank you so much for this recipe – I love moussaka but hadn’t thought of this next step. One question – is the purple skin or black skin eggplant, and does the baking time vary for each (I find baking eggplant takes really long).
