Serving suggestion:Serve the chilled Baba Ganouj with warm pita bread brushed with olive oil. If pita bread is not readily available, you can either serve it with toasted slices of a whole wheat bread / foccasia or whole wheat crackers.
Last evening, I served it to my guests with wedges of garlic bread toasted till warm. They loved it!.
The original recipe calls for Tahini, which a sesame seed paste in olive oil. Since Tahini is not easily available in grocery stores in India, I ground roasted sesame seeds along with other ingredients. I did not find much of a taste deviation from the original.
(Updated in Sep 2017: Tahini is available easily online as well as in several supermarkets – Tahini on Amazon.in )
