Aubergine And Cranberry Beans Dip Recipe
Easy dip where Roasted & smoky Aubergine, cranberry beans, parsley, roasted sesame seeds, salt & lemon juice are blended together.
For the last few days it is cloudy and rainy in Singapore. As usual we land up in having some good snacks for tea time. Since I am more in favor of baked snacks rather than deep fried we generally have Baked variety of Chips with Aubergine & Cranberry beans dip. It’s an easy dip where Roasted & smoky Aubergine, cranberry beans, parsley, roasted sesame seeds, salt & lemon juice are blended together. If you are an Aubergine lover you would surely like it. The smoky smell of Aubergine dominates the taste and to add a slight tanginess we will add few lemon juice drops. Cranberry beans is added so that the dish gets some protein added. You may replace cranberry beans with rajma (Kidney beans) if you do not have them. Adding sesame seeds enhances the tastes.
