To elevate the taste of this eggplant dish, the secret lies in layering flavors. The amalgamation of savory eggplant, seasoned anchovies, caramelized onions, fragrant chives, and crunchy fried shallots results in a harmonious blend of tastes that goes beyond the individual ingredients used.

For the perfect texture and taste, eggplants should be cooked until they are completely tender and silky. This will ensure that they are smooth and creamy and able to absorb other flavors.
