Khatte Meethe Baingan (Sweet & Sour Eggplants)

Go Meatless on Mondays! I have been associated with Meatless Monday for more than an year now. People might think, hey aren’t you a vegetarian blog anyways? Why the association?

Eggplants or Aunergines or brinjals or Baingan or Al-Badinjan – so many names of this humble vegetable. The best part is that it makes th best substitute for a non vegetarian day. It is a very good source of dietary fiber, vitamin B1, and copper. It is a good source of manganese, vitamin B6, niacin, potassium, folate, and vitamin K. It is a brain food. It is antimutagenic (anti-cancer), antimicrobial, anti-LDL (bad cholesterol) and antiviral activities. It attributes to the prevention of rheumatoid arthritis. Don’t you think that it is worth the good consumption in our day to day diet and menu planning? Please nod yes! 😀
