Time for eggplants

It's that time of the year again when eggplants are everywhere and in every market.

It should be a must menu two to three times a week. There are different sorts, the long, short, fat and round ones.

During our grandma's days there were only maybe two ways of cooking, but nowadays there are lots more ways of getting it cooked.

To those of you losing weight, why not eat the baigani — easy to get, easy to cook.

Our celebrity TV cook Mr Seeto has so many ways of cooking eggplant. The internet has tonnes of it but no one still can beat the baigani tavu and then dipped into miti.

For $2 it can give you a week's ration. Best time to use them is after the festive season that has just passed where we surely had a lot of meat.

Eggplant is known as a vegetable having a unique range of health benefits, including an ability to help build strong bones and prevent osteoporosis, reduce the symptoms of anaemia, and increase the cognitive function.

It improves cardiovascular health and protects the digestive system.

The benefits of eggplant also include weight loss, managing diabetes, reducing stress, protecting infants from birth defects, and even preventing cancer.
