Mark cooked up and froze some Baingan Bharta (a south Indian eggplant dish) with the end of our eggplant harvest last month. This rainy November
day was perfect to enjoy it, along with rice and naan. I used a new recipe for naan- it has an egg and milk in it, and worked for mixing in the bread machine.
So tonight’s dinner was take-out, in that we took it out of the freezer. Mark and I agree that this is a good way to use up eggplant. Sean ate a little, but we had some frozen bbq chicken legs in the freezer that I took out for him 🙂
The naan cooked up very differently than other recipes I’ve tried, but Mark and Sean both liked it much better. It’s definitely easier to make, and I think we can tweak it to make it a little more tender.
Mark taught me how to cook regular (not instant) rice when we got married. It almost always turns out perfectly.
Nice dinner for a gloomy evening.
