Spicy Eggplant Dip

Hidemi Walsh


I got inspired by my mother's sautéed curry eggplants. When she made that, we used to eat with rice. I really love this food but need more spicy flavor since I love spicy food which is how I created this recipe. When I made this for the first time, I ate with rice which I used to do but realized it went very well with toasted bread or crackers. I named this "eggplant dip" and added French fried onions to add different texture and little bit more nice flavor.
