Eggplants are very good for our bodies, have you ever noticed that the darker fruits,vegetables and greens are usually the best and healthiest options. They are a good source for Vitamins B1,B6 , dietary fiber, potassium, folic acid, magnesium, cooper, niacin, antioxidants and the list goes on. In studies Eggplants have also proven to lower cholesterol as well as help manage type 2 diabetes and their GI is 15 – quite low. In addition to being very beneficial to our bodies I find Eggplant to be a very versatile vegetable that will absorb any type of spices and sauces well so it makes a great cooking ingredient.
Pour the vegetables mixture over the eggplants and serve.

I think the photos are beautiful…and if it tastes even better than it looks, Wow! I do love eggplant, I would defiantly want the ginger and garlic too:)

I agree eggplants are versatile. I've tasted both types but not quite sure the taste difference. Maybe the non-Asian ones are hearty meater?
I didn't know it's a fruit! ha. I always thought it was a veggie. Great information here! The dish, of course, looks delicious!

I just finsihed eating my nasi goreng cabe hijau kemangi (green chili and lemon basil fried rice). I definitely want some of this eggplant.
Btw, you got one of the Indonesian trusted cookbook publishers. Most of my Indonesian cookbooks were written by Yasaboga teams too. You should try to look for “The Best of Indonesian desserts”
I LOVE this dish, the ingredients are so fresh and bursting with goodness, especially if you use freshly squeezed coconut milk. Btw, I think your composition is incredible, wish I had your eye and talent!
I like the spicy taste for this. I always do eggplant Italian and it is fun to find new ways to prepare it.
Cajun Chef Ryan says
Okay, I'll have a bowl of this now!
I just need a slice of a big, crusty baguette to use as my utensil for this eggplant yumminess!
I can never get enough eggplant. Love how this dish has some heat added to it. And seems light and healthy. Thanks for sharing :)
Wow, what a wonderful vegetable dish! Looks so healthy and scrumptious.

Beautiful eggplant dish, love all the spices, great recipe, I'm going to bookmark this one to try, thanks!
That's fine, the pictures show that the eggplants and eggs are well-cooked with the sauce. I think you have made a nice healthy dish.
I think this dish sounds amazing…love all the flavors packed into it! Of the couple types of eggplant I've tried, it seems that they've all tasted pretty much the same to me…perhaps the skins are a bit more tender on the smaller ones, if I remember right? Been awhile… I'm actually salivating over that pic with the raw ingredients pictured…mmmm =)
Your eggplant dish looks absolutely delish! Adding eggs and coconut into eggplants is definitely new to me; that said, I think they compliments the otherwise bland eggplants. :)
Whaaat?! I didn't know that eggplants are fruits. Either way, I love them!

Conor @ Hold the Beef says
Ah, another one of those tricky fruits that is masquerading as a vege. I love them regardless and am glad to know they have so many health benefits. Looks like a tasty dish.
Liv Wan says
I've never tried Indonesian food before but it seems like tasty and easy to make. Coconut milk in eggs must be so tasty. Thank you for sharing this recipe.
I know that the ingredients in this dish would be fabulous together. It looks great and I will have to give it a try!
I agree, these pictures are outstanding! I find eggplant can be difficult to prepare, so I normally just order it out, but I have a feeling my spice-loving fiancé would LOVE this.
Magda @ Be Nutritious says
That looks absolutely fabulous, I love everything with eggplant and actually I never tried Indonesian cuisine.
An intriguing dish – certainly not a combination I would have thought of! Nice photos, as well.
