We've marinated eggplants in a rich and creamy tomato sauce before baking it to perfection. Adding fresh whipped yoghurt on top makes it completely irresistible. Use baby eggplants to get the best results. The same ingredients can be used for preparing baked zucchini. If you have a charcoal grill, you can directly roast these marinated eggplants on the fire. It will introduce a pungent smoky flavor in the recipe. You must serve these eggplants with garlic bread or flavored fried rice.
