Vegetarian Moussaka


Welcome to an exotic version of the much-loved lasagna, minus the pasta. An urban cosmopolitan showpiece with a sauce that packs a punch! Also, an alternate healthy winter dish, eggplants have antioxidants like vitamins A and C, which help protect your cells against damage.

If eggplants aren’t available, you can use any of your favourite vegetables that would tantalise your tastebuds.

Table of Contents

Wash, peel, and slice eggplants thinly. Sprinkle with salt. Allow to drain in a colander for 30 minutes. Wipe dry. Grill.
