Exceptional eggplant…..

Fresh eggplant from the Farmers Market.

Last night I was deciding what to cook for dinner.  I had a handful of eggplant in the fridge as well as some spinach that needed to be used.  So I made curry.  I made Baingan Bharta aka eggplant curry with some spinach leaves added.  It was so good.  I served it with some chapatis I made as well.  The boys loved the chapatis.  What’s not to love about Indian flatbread.
