Harissa Eggplant Dip

Harissa Eggplant Dip

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

Spiced Eggplant Dip-A very smoky and spicy eggplant dip made with roasted eggplants, harissa, and garlic.

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 Masterchef Australia’s page 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.
