Whatever you call this fruit*, the eggplant, aubergine or brinjal (solanum melongena) its simply delicious. This fruit/berry, is prepared as a culinary vegetable but really a fruit, eggplant is classified as a berry because it contains small, edible seeds. So there!
And one of my favourite dishes is with spicy garlic sauce. This dish is savoury, sweet and piquant, called “Fish-Fragrant” even though there’s no fish in the ingredients! But the flavour and texture of the egg plan is certainly a delight.
