In this new take on eggplant Parmesan, the eggplant is grilled instead of fried and the spices are more typical of India than Italy.
Prepare a hot fire in a charcoal grill or heat a gas grill or broiler. Away from the heat source, lightly coat the rack or broiler pan with cooking spray. Position the cooking rack 4 to 6 inches from the heat source.
Trim the eggplant and cut into round slices about 1/4-inch thick. Arrange the slices on the rack or pan and grill or broil, turning once, until the eggplant is tender and browned, about 5 minutes on each side. Set aside and keep warm.
In a small bowl, combine the first 7 spices. In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add the spice mixture and cook, stirring constantly, for about 30 seconds. Add the onion and saute until soft and translucent, about 4 minutes. Add the tomatoes, molasses, garlic and vinegar. Cook the sauce, stirring occasionally, until thickened, about 4 minutes. Season with the salt and pepper.
Transfer the eggplant to a warmed serving dish or individual plates, pour the sauce over, and garnish with the cilantro.
