This recipe is a bit longer than my usual "simple joys", but bear with me please because I promise you, the end result is so worth it! The flavor profile is just awesome with this dish, and I usually serve Musamba with basmati white rice, made Persian style.

TIP: Make sure you generously salt the eggplant prior to pan frying them. This allows the eggplants to not soak up as much oil during the frying process.

And remember to always...
