I really miss Middle Eastern food.

Has anyone ever made this before in Taiwan.

I found this recipe

I can’t seem to find the proper eggplant

I can only find the long thin purple ones

Could I use those?

I’m sure you can. Just more work with peeling and draining.

You definitely could, but lord it’s a lot of work. And don’t even get me started on the Taiwanese yogurt and how it tastes in middle eastern style dips…

I have seen the round, purple eggplants at the supermarket at several Mitsukoshi department
stores in the past. Alot of people in Asia call them “Japanese eggplant”.
