Eggplant is one of my favourite vegetables. This mouthwatering spicy dish is served in Sri Lanka on special occasions such as weddings. So good is it that I would happily eat it every day of the week if not for the high oil content. Definitely not one for calorie counters! It is usually served with a chicken curry and saffron rice. I love it hot, but cold the next day, it is sensational. If you wish, prior to cooking, you can cut each eggplant lengthwise into quarters, sprinkle with the salt and leave uncovered in a single layer for thirty minutes. Rinse the eggplant under a cold tap, pat-dry with kitchen paper, and slice into 1" cubes as directed below. I personally don't bother with the salting process. If you prefer to use baby eggplant, just slice crosswise into 1" cubes. Recipe obtained from a Sri Lankan friend.
