      Long story, but I'll try to make it short! Russ came home today with an eggplant for no apparent reason then I went looking for a beef curry in my cookbook and stumbled upon this recipe and decided to make it as well! What a find! We eat heaps of ratatouille and to us, this is like an Indian version minus the zuchinni and with yummier spices. A FANTASTIC find. I made half a recipe but found it needed all the water added in.
