That looks so nice! Unfortunately my husband can't eat dairy so if I make it, he'll be grumbling away

Hi isha, I learned to make this from my Pakistani friend, but is better that you fried it, cut the big eggplant,very thin , fried one by one , drain,it , first, cool it and add yoghurt. I made the grill one yesterday because I can't stand in the kitchen for a long time the weather is so hot. Do try this one you might like it.
