Afghan food has such a depth of flavor. I love their colorful, vibrant culture but most of all I love their cuisine. My favorite Afghan food is Borani Banjan. I love the way the eggplant is spiced and the delicately spiced yogurt sauce. It's pure perfection. If you are as fond of eggplant as I am, this is sure to become a favorite for you.
