We make, eat and review a lot of curries, so we are tough critics. This was good, but lacked "wow factor". I can hardly think of a curry made without onion, garlic, ginger and think this one missed those three things. I garnished the finished dish with mint, but if I'd had it, I'd have used fresh coriander instead. I served this with natural yoghurt on the side which gave it a lift.

Based on other reviews I tripled the spices, which was perfect for us. I'm not a big fan of chewy peels, so think I will probably peel the eggplant and tomatoes next time. Great way to enjoy some fresh eggplant. For ZWT9

We thought this was a nice, easy to make, hearty curry. Based on other reviews, we made some modifications: added a chopped onion, 3 cloves of garlic, cilantro for garnish and increased the spices to 1 tsp. I think we would have preferred even more than 1 tsp next time. This felt healthy and was easy for a weeknight meal. We served over basmati rice. Thanks!

Yup, I think it needs something(s) too -- more spices, maybe a touch of heat, maybe a little more tomato to catch up with the bland potato and eggplant. It's a good idea in theory, but need to mess with the execution.

Great vegetarian curry; easy to make, too. I used a little more of each of the spices listed and added some chopped garlic just to suit my own taste. I'm sure this is fantastic iver rice, but I was happy with it just by itself. Chopped fresh parsley is great as a granish for this. Thanx!
