This is my favourite way to cook eggplant. I use to eat it with pita but now just serve it on the side of my dinner.

Delicious Persian salad that I always get when I go to restaurants. Cheaper to make it at home and goes with any meal. You might find sumac at any middle eastern store, but if you can't find it leave it out. It just adds an extra tang to the salad.
