Brinjal also known as “eggplant” is a very interesting vegetable. Eggplants or Aubergines as sometimes called, grow on a bush, which produces variously shaped fruit over a long period of time. The most common type is the glossy, smooth skinned, tear drop-shaped eggplant which has dark purplish satin-like skin. Inside, the spongy flesh is white to creamy-white with many small edible seeds. This vegetable is a good source of dietary fiber. It is rich in vitamin B6 and just 75g provides a whole day’s supply. Its purple skin contains some antioxidants that has some great health benefits.
