Recipe Notes

You can use vegetable-based cooking oils if you don’t┬áprefer the intense smokiness of the mustard oil.

You can use any kind of eggplant, just make the cut big so it can hold its shape.

You can deep fry the eggplant ( as it is done traditionally)I wanted to avoid the excess oil, hence roasted them.
