Grilled Vegetables on the BBQ | Quick Meals

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.

Baingan Ka Bharta | Punjabi Smoky Eggplant Curry

An Indian eggplant dish with a wonderful smoky flavour.

There are so many way to cook eggplants – it is such a versatile vegetable. It prefers to be a part of a larger dish than stand on its own. The exception is grilled aubergine slices, dressed Greek style with Olive oil.

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 the same way but vary in the other 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.
