Smoky Harissa Eggplant Dip

Smoky Harissa Eggplant Dip

A smoky and lip-smackingly delicious eggplant dip spiced with harissa and perfect to enjoy with flaky flatbreads.

I have always loved eggplants given in any form and can have it any time of the day. So when I saw this smoky and spiced eggplant dip on tv a few years back I knew it that I had to make it straight away.

The roasted and burnt garlic added an extra flavor to the dip – and not to mention the spiciness from harissa and mild nutty flavor from tahini too this dip to an extra level of amazingness.

At first, I thought to serve the dip with pita bread sticks but unfortunately ran out of the bread. Then I had to use quick and easy lachha paratha to serve with it and frankly, it was even better than pita.
