Here is a photo of my recently cooked eggplant. I steamed it mixed with tomatoes, Italian spice, oregano, onion, garlic, salt and black pepper. My main preference is roasting the whole eggplant in the oven and then when it's done, add chopped raw onion and fresh garlic. Mama Mia! That is what I call a dish fit for a king! If you like eggplant as I do, how do you like to have your eggplant cooked?

@nomus24g That looks deliciously appetizing! I always cook eggplant quite regularly. There are so many different ways to cook eggplant so that it never becomes a boring dish. I haven't flavored my eggplant with turmeric, but I have cooked it using curry powder and cumin spice. Another way I like to cook eggplant is by slicing into round pieces, then fry it in olive oil coated with bread crumbs with a good spicy salsa sauce on top. Yummy good!

My husband and I usually make Eggplant Parmesan when we buy Eggplant. He likes to cook and he made a batch with a recipe he had and I at another time made it with a recipe I had.

We deep fry our egg plants and we also have a dish where we have mashed eggplants - like mashed potatoes.

@zarlamain I love eggplant fried. When I roast my eggplant, I take the peel off, and mash it up with fresh onion, garlic, salt and pepper. Yes, it tastes very good mashed.

@rina110383 Yes, the spices gave the eggplant a nice kick. Sometimes I add a bit of cumin powder for more flavor and a jalapeƱo for a hot eggplant taste.

@marlina I think eggplant parmesan takes away some of the bitter taste of eggplant.

@Micmac It depends and differs.Sometimes just turmeric,chilly powder pepper and salt.Other times I steam it crush it add chilly garlic tamarind juice. Or I may prepare using the ingredients for a chicken curry,substituting eggplant for chicken.

@jstory07 I find many people don't care for eggplant. Everyone has different taste buds. For me, it taste good whether I bake, fry or roast it.

@LovingMyBabies It's not bad when it's baked as a eggplant parmesan casserole with cheese and Italian spaghetti sauce or tomato sauce.
