Wonderful! I served this as a side dish and didn't add as many vegetables as stated but it still made LOTS! Maybe it would be 4 servings as a main dish. I only used about 1/2 and eggplant because it looked like so much, but the eggplant cooked down and almost disappeared. It was nice and soft and contrasted nicely with the cauliflower and peppers (which I cooked until still crisp). Like Gumboot Gourmet, I couldn't find curry leaves, so followed her idea of using curry powder. Next time I will add a bit more cayenne, I thinkit could be hotter and still retain the great flavour. I sprinkled the cilantro over top so those who don't like it could pick around it. Thank you, Pets, for a great recipe!
