    1. 1
      Place whole eggplant in a shallow pan and bake in a 400-degree oven until very soft (about 50 minutes). Cool slightly. Cut a slit in eggplant and scoop out pulp; discard large seed packets, skin, and stem. Coarsely chop pulp; place in a colander to drain.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in a wide frying pan over medium heat.
    3. 3
      Add cumin seeds, ginger, and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft.
    4. 4
      Stir in turmeric, green pepper, coriander, ground cumin, paprika, salt, pepper, and tomato. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tomato releases its juices (about 5 minutes).
    5. 5
      Add water and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
    6. 6
      Stir in chopped eggplant and cook for 5 minutes to heat through and blend flavors.
    7. 7
      Just before serving, stir in coriander.

      I wasn't as thrilled with this as I thought I'd be ... and I can't quite put my finger on it, which is pretty useless. I'll definitely give it a second try, though, because it was quite flavorful, and full of vegetables that I love. And I see now that I used only a teaspoon of ginger, and not a tablespoon -- and that may well have made the difference I needed. (Have to get new reading glasses!) There's a lot to like in this recipe, though, and I would recommend it to others to try it.

      Lovely. I made a couple of subs- such as leaving out the oil and used canned tomatoes. Super easy to make and I love all the flavors in this. I ate this a lot this week for lunch with whole grain pita bread. Thanks for posting, I would make this again.

      This takes less than 10 minutes to prepare not counting the 45-50 minutes to bake the eggplant. It is absolutely delicious, we will be making this often. It's quick, easy and delicious. Thank you for posting the recipe.
