Aubergine & Cranberry Beans Dip


Aubergine & Cranberry Beans Dip
For the last few days it is cloudy and rainy in Singapore. As usual we land up in having some good snacks for tea time. Since I am more in favor of baked snacks rather than deep fried we tried the DIP Food’s Baked Pita Chips with Aubergine & Cranberry beans dip. It’s an easy dip where Roasted & smoky Aubergine, cranberry beans, parsley , roasted sesame seeds, salt & lemon juice are blended together.

Aubergine & Cranberry Beans Dip

If you are an Aubergine/ Brinjal lover you would surely like it. The smoky smell of Aubergine dominates the taste and to add a slight tanginess we will add few lemon juice drops. Cranberry beans is added so that the dish gets some protein added. You may replace cranberry beans with rajma (Kidney beans) if you do not have them. Adding sesame seeds enhances the tastes. Ideal to go with Pita Chips & Pita Bread.

We used DIP Food's Pita chips and I was so satisfied primarily because its a baked one and the masalas like fenugreek,ajwai,cumin & rest of the spices where added in perfect proportion.  Aubergine & Cranberry Beans dip was a perfect combination.
