About this recipe:This is a very simple, quick and more importantly authentic Indian side dish of grilled aubergine and tomato. Best served with naan or roti. It should have a consistency of, um, well, 'mush' when finished - but it's delicious!
1 to 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 plum tomatoes, chopped
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 sprigs fresh coriander, chopped

I'm on a low GI diet for the next year and have been looking for a recipe that has aubergine as the main ingredient. Tried this with a few tweaks which I have added, and just adored it. Loved it with my roast butternut squash oven roasted chips and grilled chicken. I have also checked with my dietician and she says that as far as she can see, it's o.k to eat plenty of. This is one recipe that looks awful but tastes the total opposite - 01 May 2011
