Eggplant Dip, Veg Baba Ganoush, Roasted Eggplant Dip

The Middle Eastern name for this dip is Baba Ganoush which is eaten with warm pita bread as an appetiser or a snack. While may not sound very appetising to have a brinjal dip…, trust me you will not even realize that you are eating brinjal. Brinjals are a rich source of iron which is an important component of our blood.

Today a variety of readymade dips are available in the market. But it is wiser to make one at home since it will be free of preservatives as well as more nutritious. You can even use it as a sandwich spread as it is healthier as compared to a calorie laden cheese or mayonnaise based sandwich.

Nothing like the taste of burnt brinjal which is blended and then mixed with low fat curds and spiced with green chilli and flavored with garlic. Healthy and brinjals are a rich source of iron. Serve with cucumber or carrots.
