My wife does not really like Indian food that much, but she loved this with pita bread. We went heavy on the Turmeric (2-1/2 tsp.) and went without the tomatoes. The dish was spicier than expected. We were very pleased with the results.

Very simple curry that smelled heavenly and tasted even better. I subbed 1/4 stick of butter for the 1/2-cup recommended, and I used chicken broth instead of water. The resulting dish was out of this world. Served with steamed Basmati rice, it was a bowl of Indian-style comfort.

I've been experimenting with Indian cooking for the past year or so and this is hands-down my favorite recipe. I cook vegan, so I substituted soy margarine instead of butter. I also tweaked the cooking times by steaming the bell peppers and pre-cooking the potatoes. A good addition would be some naan and samosas for appetizer/side dish. Cheers!

Good, but......., June 29, 2006 - 09:25 PM
Reviewer: Amit from New York City
Am I the only one who found this recipe WAY too salty? I could tell it wouldn't be a good idea to add the 1.5 tsp of salt it called for, and it's a good thing I didn't, or it would have been inedible. Is there some intermediate step that should be mentioned in the recipe, whereby the salt used to pull the moisture out of the eggplant slices is rinsed off or otherwise gotten rid of before being put into the pot? This step seems necessary to me, especially if additional salt is called for in the recipe.
