Indonesian's Hot Eggplants Dish



Beginning of Spring my husband prepared a small garden for me , thought will be fun to grow own veggie and cook food which is come from own yard. At that time we were not too serious to plant many kind of vegetables. We just choose some seeds that we like , such : eggplant, cucumber, tomatoes and off course bird chilly (Capsicum frutescens) .






Today some of vegetables grow so good . Unfortunately not for chili *yups..!! my husband just laughing when I cry for my poor chili ^_^ . He hate chili so bad .

It was so funny because me and my husband come from different country so I cooked a different kind of eggplant dish. And when dinner time come everybody happy with own favorite dish :-)

We just happy with our garden, and plan to make a bigger than today for next year. As I can say, not only my husband worked hard for that garden but my 2 years old daughter too ^_^



she's dancing during the working time :-)



And this is my entry for Event "GROW YOUR OWN" hosting by Bee & Jai From JUGALBANDI, one of my Indonesian favorite dish , and will posting another eggplant dish next time
