Eggplant, Chickpeas & Basmati Rice with Coriander Yogurt
Eggplant is one of those ingredients that can be slightly intimidating the first time you cook with it. The reward of getting eggplant right though, is deliciously gratifying. Tender eggplant and toothsome chickpeas top fluffy basmati rice and make for a dish with amazing texture. The dish is topped with a tangy yogurt sauce that highlights the flavors of fresh cilantro and coriander. Fun Fact: coriander and cilantro come from the same plant. Coriander refers to the dried seeds of the plant and cilantro refers to the leaves and stalks.
