    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      *Garlic Cayenne paste: 4 cloves of garlic pulverized, 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (more if you want), 1 teaspoon ground cumin mashed into the garlic. It helps to put a little sea or kosher salt in to act as an abrasive.
    2. 2
      Heat oil over medium in large saucepan, add mustard seeds. Once seeds begin to pop, add potato and eggplant and stir-fry for a few minutes (if the start sticking a lot, add a little more oil).
    3. 3
      Add the dry spices and salt and continue stir-frying for a few minutes until all spices are well blended; mix in garlic paste, breaking up any lumps.
    4. 4
      Add 3/4 cup water (you may need more, maybe not; 3/4 cup is a good starting point), lower heat and cover pan.
    5. 5
      Cook about 15 minutes or until the eggplant and potatoes are soft. If the sauce begins to dry up add a little more water.
    6. 6
      Add tomato and cook two or three more minutes.
    7. 7
      Garnish with chopped cilantro if you wish.

      I made this dish as part of the Spring 2013 PAC challenge. <br/><br/>I made this dish for our family's weekly Meatless Monday. And it was a super big hit!<br/>My husband had three helpings, and even my little girl loved it. The potatoes make this filling, the eggplant cooks down to a nice buttery softness, and the spices are just right. It's a very quick and easy Indian dish that I think anyone could make. <br/><br/>Thank you for posting this wonderful dish.
