I think I broke your eggplant.
I am very sorry.
Below you can see the results of my trying to cook the eggplant S. gave me when he last visited. I don't think I cooked it very well. It tasted very mushy and very bland and a little sour. Perhaps I waited too long to cook it; but the flesh was still firm, and it didn't seem squishy or rotten.
Strangely, it tasted fine when mixed with the hummus and eaten on top of a (whole grain, organic) tortilla chip. Didn't try mixing it against the cheese.
What did I do wrong? I popped the mustard seed and cumin, added the onion, added the eggplant and some water, covered it and let it simmer until the water was gone, added a bit of milk and garam masala, let it cook for a few more moments...
Hmmm. On the other hand, the apples were lovely, and S. gave me those as well. ^__^
