    1. 1
      Chop the eggplants into 1-inch cubes with the skins on. Boil eggplant pieces in large stockpot for about 5-7 minutes, or until soft. Drain well, set aside.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat. Mix in cumin seeds and mustard seeds. Let them roast for about 1 minute or until they start to sizzle and pop.
    3. 3
      Stir in onion and fry for 2 minutes or until onion is tender. Add turmeric powder and fry for another 30 seconds.
    4. 4
      Add ginger-garlic paste, frying for about 1 minute. Stir in cayenne pepper, curry powder, and diced tomato. Cover and let simmer on low heat for about 5 minutes, or until the tomato is almost a paste (if you must, add 1-2 tablespoons of water to keep the mixture moist).
    5. 5
      Add salt, green chiles, and plain yogurt. Cook for 30 seconds, then add the eggplants. Cover and cook for 7-10 minutes. Mix in chopped cilantro and serve over rice.

      Loved this eggplant curry. I used Japanese eggplant and added some mushrooms as well. Loved the flavor combinations -- it was delicious over rice. The only other change that I made was to reduce the number of chilies and I removed the seeds as well. I made this along with Indian Chili Mushroom -- it was a very delicious meal. Made for Fall PAC, 2012.
