How to (roast?) eggplant?

anakalia | Mar 7, 2010 07:18 PM

I love eggplant, but I seem to have a lot of trouble cooking it. Specifically, I would love to learn how to make it so that its like those slightly oily, soft rounds with crispy skins that I sometimes find on salads or stuffed inside a falafel sandwich (best: L'aus du falafel in Paris). I have no idea what to even call this - is it roasted? Sauteed? I want to know this method so I can make it at home. Any tips?
PS: I have a ceramic-top electric stovetop, so hopefully I won't discover that I need to roast the eggplant over an open flame to do this...
