Very tasty. I had to change the instructions a bit - using slices of Eggplant didn't work, so I ended up cutting them into quarters. I didn't have tomato paste, but a tomato so I ended up adding that to the Eggplant, with raw onion and gradually adding everything else back in. I sub'd yogurt for sour cream, but it turned out very tasty. Thanks!
