Another recipe courtesy of the great Madhur Jaffrey. I'm often looking for new eggplant dishes, and can't believe I haven't tried this particular recipe until today, it's really very easy. From what I've read, traditionally in this dish the eggplant would be fried - in this version it is broiled which obviously cuts down on the calories quite substantially. I also used light coconut milk. I only had one eggplant on hand today and it turned out great, a nice side-dish or main for 2. I can imagine that by using two regular eggplants you would be able to serve at least 3, if not 4, as a main. Next time you run across good looking eggplants in the store, pick a few out and give this a try! (One last note, apparently the original version of this normally calls for 2 tsp of cayenne...wow, that would be hot. 1/2 tsp, as called for here, was just about right for us, but of course, season away as you like!).
