Variations:

  1. This recipe is originally made with eggplant. Can also be made with cauliflower, cabbage, potatoes, and a combination. The trick is to cook the vegetables to an al dente texture - not too soft, with a bite.
  2. A splash of lime/lemon juice may be added at the end to enhance the flavors!
