I liked this but my husband was not so keen. He thought the coriander leaves were overpowering, and I would suggest even for those who love them (and I imagine anyone making this recipe probably does) to begin perhaps with only half a cup; you can always add more to suit your taste if you so desire. Thanks for posting !

A very good core recipe. I tinkered by: microwaving the eggplant instead of grilling; leaving out the corridander leaves altogether; using only one chilli; using ground cumin instead of seed; and adding about one half the recommended oil. I plan to make it again.

This is very much like how we used to make baingan bharta in Oman. In step 10, I used 1 1/4 tsps. of garam masala powder, 1 1/4 tsps. corriander powder, 1 tsp. turmeric powder, 1/2 tsp. red chilli powder and 1 tsp. salt. In steo 10, I used 1/2 cup of water as well to cook the tomatoes. I also used 1/4 tsp. of mustard seeds with the cumin seeds in step 6. As for the corriander leaves, I used just 2 tbsps.{chopped} of them. This bharta goes well with hot rotis!
