To be completely honest, this is my second time EVER making (or attempting to make) eggplant parmigiana. When I was thinking of how I wanted to make it, I initially had ideas of adding some masalas here and there but as I started to make it, I realized I wanted to keep it a bit more traditional with just a TEENY bit of the chutneylife flare.
