This is a very flavoursome eggplant spread that can be alternatively used as a dip. Makes a great snack or pre-dinner nibble.
LEAVE OUT THE BROWN SUGAR!! When I copied down the recipe, I forgot the brown sugar, and it came out wonderfully. The second time I made it, I did put in the brown sugar and did not like it as much. My friends and husband didn't like it sweetened either. But without the sugar it is fabulous and chic! A really nice, flavorful, asian-inspired dip that will really impress everyone, even people who are not into eggplant. - 26 Aug 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I didn't find this to have a strange taste at all! I liked it, it does seem to be missing something though..not sure what. Maybe the flavours need to meld a bit before serving. - 15 Jan 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Delish! I will probably cut down the sugar a little next time, but didn't find the sweetness offensive. I liked this a lot! - 13 Apr 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
