    This recipe was delicious. However, the amount was barely four servings and needed only an 8 x 8 casserole. I would recommend doubling the ingredients. Also it would help if a weight was given for the eggplant (rather than large) and also the width of the slices (thick or thin). Thank you. :SantaCookies:

    Sounds great! Wonder how it would feel to taste! Patients who suffer from the problems of diabetes are already onto so many restrictions in the dietary regime that it becomes a very dull routine for them. But with no other options in hand they have to stick to this strict diet chart. Now this comes as a bonus which is tasty and as well as ensures that there is no harm done to the people suffering from diabetes. My father being one such patient, I am definitely going to surprise him by making this dish. Thanks a lot. :Great:
