Baba ghannouj?[edit]

Isn't it just another name for baba ghanoush? I mean - really the same thing. An article says that the difference is that mutabbel is "spicier". Imho, it is not a satisfying explanation, because it is a very subjective measure. Otherwise if you put more more spices to baba ghanoush, it will turn to mutabbel :-) Alex Ex (talk) 21:00, 22 February 2008 (UTC)

Baba ghanoush[edit]

You're absolutely right, Alex Ex, it's the same thing. I don't know why there are two separate articles. Additionally, the article says mutabal is Palestinian, Lebanese, and Syrian. All those people seem to call it baba ganoush, and in my experience it is the Armenians who call it mutabal. Finally, it says that the difference besides spice is that mutabal includes tahini, but recipes I know for baba ganoush also include tahini. They're the same thing, and having two articles is redundant and pointless. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.124.149.222 (talk) 01:02, 2 March 2008 (UTC)
