The easiest way to use a BBQ.
The easiest thing to do with a BBQ, the thing that does not take any thinking or preparing, is simple grilled vegetables with, say, haloumi.
It’s for those nights when it is far too much to stir, cut, saute, blend, whiz, spice up, make tadkas. When the weather is nice it is perfect for a BBQ.

An Indian eggplant dish with a wonderful smoky flavour.
There are so many way to cook eggplants – it is such a versatile vegetable. Although it can definitely stand on its own (eg steamed eggplant dishes), it often prefers to be a part of a larger dish than stand on its own.
This recipe is an Indian dish where the eggplant is grilled until cooked through, and the flesh is mixed with spices. Many cuisines have recipes that treat the eggplant in similar ways but vary the ingredients. Baba Ganoush is one example.
Bharta are North Indian (Punjabi) dishes where the main ingredient is roasted and then pureed with spices. The flavours are intensified by the roasting and the resulting dish is spicy and tangy. Baingan Bharta is so popular, though, versions exist in several states of India.
