Thanks for the idea because I always stick to the Malaysian versions of cooking eggplant. This is something new and would love to try out. Interesting flavors and I think I can find most of the ingredients over here.

What a fantastic vegetarian/vegan style meal. I love eggplant (I made an eggplant dish this week myself). :) I never paired it with beans... but sounds like a winning combination. :)
