Baba ghanouj- Middle eastern eggplant dip recipe
I found this recipe in Tarla dalal's recipe book when I was looking for something else. The lebanese cuisine does not restrict itself to just "hummus".

And I feel , people who hate eggplant can try making it this way. They may like it as the seasonings give a very different flavour to the eggplant.
