This is an excellent vegetable dish from Sierra Leone. A tantalizing marinated eggplant and tomato salad tossed with coconut and peanuts just before serving for an exotic crunch.

I gave this recipe only 3 stars because the jury is still out. It has an interesting flavor. The only things that keep me from rating this higher is the recipe calls for vinegar but what kind? (I used red wine vinegar) and also I think it would taste better if the onions and tomatoes were also cooked and then chilled along with the eggplant. I will give this recipe another try with a few changes to see how I like it.

Absolutely outstanding! I cooked the onions w/ eggplant & added ~ 1/2 tsp coriander. Used cashews instead of peanuts. My husband, who is not an eggplant lover couldn't get enough.

I thought I had red chili peppers at home, but didn't, so I substituted pickled jalapenos, and that worked well. After slicing the eggplant, tomatoes, and onion (and sweating the eggplant by salting it and letting it sit for 30 minutes, then rinsing off the salt), I chopped them up into bite-sized pieces. Needed more butter than the recipe called for, but instead I added olive oil ... also browned the onions per other reviewers' suggestion. Used less olive oil in the end dish (because I had used some in cooking the eggplant & onion.) I love balsamic vinegar, so I used that - it gave the dish an ugly brown color, but tasted good. I will make this again - would give it 3 1/2 stars if I could.
