n the menu this week is an Indian stew made with
eggplant. You can westernize it by serving it over
mashed potatoes or polenta, or even creamy grits.
Or, serve it with clove-scented Jasmine rice as I do. End the
meal with mango clafouti, a not-too-sweet, coffee-type cake
with a custard-type consistency, served warm, with fresh
whipped cream on the side.

Cut the eggplant into 1-inch slices,
and brush with olive oil. Grill over
high heat, turning once or twice, until
the eggplant is charred on both sides;
or place the eggplant slices on a bak-
ing sheet, and cook in a preheated
450-degree oven for about 20 minutes.
Cool and chop. Set aside.
Heat the oil in a large skillet over
medium-high heat. Add the onions
and cumin seeds, and saute until the
onion is tender. Add the eggplant,
tomatoes, ginger, curry, jalapeno and
garlic, and saute for 1 minute. Cover,
and cook 10 minutes. Remove lid,
reduce heat to simmer and cook for 10
minutes more. Adjust salt to taste.
Serve hot, garnished with cilantro
and lime wedges and with yogurt on
the side. Makes 6 servings.
