I posted a comment earlier, but for some reason it got nixed. I made this dish last night and it was great! I used canned tomatoes instead of fresh. I love eggplant and am always trying to find new recipes for it. Hope this review makes it this time :-)

I made this dish for supper tonight for my DD and myself. My DH is a meat and potatoes man so I thought I would try this as he is working tonight. I made it just as the recipe said, using the fresh tomato option and 5 chilies. I did need to add about 1/4 cup water as suggested to keep it from drying out. WE LOVED IT! A very good spicy vegetarian dish. Thanks, Ranikabani!
