Brinjal Caponata - Purple Aubergine, Cumin, Curry Leaves - 8 oz

With its hearty flesh, gleaming purple skin and caviar-like seeds, the Brinjal or Aubergine is considered the “King of Vegetables” in the Middle East and South Asia. Revered in Indian folklore, it is said to attract untold prosperity and treasure. This treasure of a relish has its origins in Western India and, much like its Provençal, Sicilian, and Spanish sisters, its sweet-and-sour taste has natural affinity to oil-rich grilled fish, lamb, nutty cheeses, and breads. Also available in a 2 oz size for gifts/holiday baskets and a 32 oz size for foodservice.
Date product entered market: July 1, 2015
