Dinner: Indian Eggplant Bhurtha

Last week I bought an eggplant, a can of coconut milk and Silken tofu. I was planning on making curry, but Aafreen told me that in Indian cuisine you don't mix eggplant with coconut milk, so I had to come up with another idea.

This time, instead of making up my own recipe, I found Indian Eggplant Bhurtha on All Recipes website. This was a super easy recipe and came out unbelievably good! It was hard not to go for seconds. The only change I made to the recipe was the addition of cubed tofu. I would absolutely do it again.

Just some of the spices! Look at the colors: the flavors were just as vibrant. An awesome way to cook an eggplant: you rub it with oil and then broil it for about 30 min turning it so often. The skin came off so easily!

Next on the menu: I am going to make another Indian dish: cauliflower with peas! Look for recipes and pictures soon :)
