There is no shortage of grilled eggplant dishes in the world, but this one—a dip that is a specialty of Trinidad’s Indian community—is one of the few I know of in which the eggplant is studded with garlic cloves before grilling. What results is an incredible depth of flavor. I often use this Trinidadian technique when I grill eggplant for another use.

Serve this as a dip with Grilled Pita Chips.
