Indian Inspired Eggplant

There’s a mobile produce truck that stops at different places in my town. I finally made it to one of the stops last week and picked up some tomatoes and eggplant. They came in pretty handy when I needed to make a side dish for my sister’s Roshashanah dinner. Sadly not everyone likes nightshades but a few people loved the dish I made.
