    I thought this was a solidly good aubergine curry but nothing special.

    Like some others here, this didn't really wow me. Based on L.Nightshade's comment I should have weighed my eggplant. Even still, it was quite bland.

    It’s a good thing she uses some weights, as the recipe calls for four eggplants, weighing in at 2 1/4 lb, so perhaps she is using Asian eggplant. My single eggplant weighed 1 1/4 lb, which was fine for my half recipe. My eggplant took longer than the 10 minutes called for in the recipe. I’m glad I didn’t add the sugar, as the dish had a slight sweetness without it. While I liked this, it was a bit bland in the spice department. The deggi mirch gave it a slight after-kick, but that’s about it. I love eggplant, and I love peas, so that was just fine with me.

    Didn't wow me as much as some of the recipes in the book, although it's quick and easy to make and doesn't need many ingredients. I substituted a can of tomatoes for fresh. It seemed like too much aubergine for the sauce, but they reduced down with cooking.

    Really easy and tasty curry that doesn't need a lot of ingredients or time to make and won't break the bank. Lovely with some kind of flatbread (Naan, chapatti etc).
