This dish is redolent with the flavours of the Middle East and is a personal favourite of mine.

friedeggplant-1556139 2. Fried Eggplant (recipe)
Slivers of seasoned eggplant (or melongene as it is more commonly called here in Trinidad) are floured and breaded before being pan fried. The results are a light flavourful crust with a warm molten center. If you are not traditionally a fan of eggplants, this may be just the thing to turn you into a convert!

Like many of the Mario Batali dishes that I have tried, this recipe provides rich flavour and a satisfying contrast in textures, through what appears as relatively few ingredients.

4. Stuffed Melongene (recipe)

Creamy, buttery, chewy on the outside from the charred skin, and sweet on top from the ketchup this, my mother’s recipe to me, is close to the ultimate comfort food

Coming from the American Turkey Federation I’m not sure exactly how ‘Arabian’ this recipe actually is, but despite that grey area all you really need to know is that it is good!
