I grew up in Israel eating falafel at least once a week. One of the main condiments was amba, made from pickled preserved mango, turmeric and lemon. In this recipe the amba sauce gives a great depth to the vegetables and makes an instant curry like dish.

Heat some olive oil in a pan and cook the eggplant on all sides until it gets a nice golden brown color. Season with salt and add a few spoonfuls of amba sauce (make sure you include some of the diced mango). Cook for a few minutes until the eggplant is soft.
Add more sauce or water as you like then remove to a serving dish.
Using the same pan, cook the cauliflower wedges the same way you just cooked the eggplant.
You can serve this hot, at room temperature, or cold the next day.
Variations and Ideas:
Add diced chicken breast to the pan when you add the amba sauce. Add diced halloumi or paneer to either or both during the last few minutes of cooking
