This Eggplant Masala Spread Dip has been one of my favorite recipes done by my mom. As she cooked it, the house smelled so good. And then we enjoyed it as a spread on bread. This spread will make your mouth melt. For this recipe, I have customized it a little bit by adding more spices and making it savory. My husband truly enjoys this dish. It is healthy, savory and light.
