Urmila's Baked Potato and Eggplant Curry

"This is a slightly adapted version of a recipe from the mom of one my friends. She is from the state of Gujarat in India. If you have or can find dhana zeeru, you can use that in place of the ground cumin and coriander. Thank you to Mia for including this in her best of 2017!"

    This was absolutely delicious! I followed the recipe to the letter except that at first I didn't pay attention and missed the "cover pan" part... LOL So for the first half hour, I cooked it uncovered, but that didn't affect the outcome at all I think, it was perfect and we loved it! Thanks for sharing. Made for Think Pink Event 2017

    What a great curry recipe and so different from the saucy versions that I generally make. Loved the addition of the eggplant in this dish - I used baby Indian eggplant in this dish. I didn't use Indian chili powder as I find even the smallest amount too hot for me. But I did use cayenne pepper instead as we do enjoy heat in our curry dishes. Served alongside some green peas and together, they made a delicious vegetarian dinner last night. Great recipe!

    This recipe is not the prettiest (DH was grumbling about how he'd have to order a pizza because he was SURE he was not going to like it), but it definitely has great flavor and is quite easy to make. DH begrudging admitted while eating that he liked the dish. We both enjoyed the eggplant more than the potatoes. Next time, I might just make the eggplant. I made no modifications to the recipe other than to use regular chile powder as I didn't have Indian chile powder. I used ground cashews. This was enjoyed. Thanks so much!

    Wow! This is really tasty and quite easy to make as well. The only changes I made were to use some tahini instead of nuts (which I didn't have) and a bit of curry powder, cinnamon and Chinese five-spice powder (!) as a rough substitution for garam masala, and chopped instead of crushed tomatoes. I am eating it right now, with brown rice. Make sure you serve it very hot, almost straight from the oven.
