Delish! I made it more-or-less as written, but also added 1 t. mustard powder, less cayenne, and more cilantro. After I cooked it, it was "good" but not "great", - and I realized I had used probably over double the eggplant the recipe called for (1 1/3 large globe eggplants) and so I just added more of the easy (dry) seasonings, and it came out terrific. So I estimate the recipe, as written, to be spot-on, and will use it in the future.
I thought that this recipe was great. My only critique is that there is TOO much onion in it. The next time I make it, I am going to double the amount of eggplant and cut the amount of onion in half. Otherwise, it was very similar to the version I have at my favorite indian restaurant
