For a 100% gluten-free dish, you can serve this dish with white rice or pilaf, polenta, or quinoa. Otherwise, bulgur is a cereal that will also go very well with this dish.
Soya yoghurt can be replaced by whole cow milk yoghurt that contains lactose.
When cooking is nearly finished, if the eggplants become too dark, you can place a sheet of baking paper on top.
