This variety is about the size of a large tomato, oblong egg-shaped, with the same dark purple skin as its much larger, more familiar Italian cousin.

However, Indian eggplant is must sweeter than its relative, with few seeds and a medium-thick edible skin that does not require peeling before being cooked. The interior has a creamy texture.

While technically a fruit, eggplant is prepared as a vegetable and found in cuisines worldwide. One of the most versatile of ingredients, eggplant can be baked whole or cut in half, steamed, grilled, sautéed or braised.

Because of Indian eggplant’s single serving size, it is perfect for stuffing with other veggies or meats and roasted.
