I wish there was a half star option b/c I would give this 3 1/2. Although it wasnt nearly the best curry I've had it improved by leaps and bounds after sitting overnight in the fridge. If I make it next time I will cook it a day ahead of time. I added onions garlic and at the very end coconut milk. I double all the spice and probably tripled the salt. Read More

We had this tonight for dinner taking the suggestion of adding califlower. I only had one jalapeno and red potatos but it was still very tasty and quick. I was worried that there was not going to be any sauce but the eggplant and tomatos disolved and I only added 1/2 can of coconut milk at the very end along with some spinach. Very good but not quite mind-blowing. Oh- I also peeled the eggplant and soaked it with salt for 1/2 hour first then rinsed it and used it as it came from my boyfriend's mothers' garden and I was worried it was a little bitter. Yum- we will probably try this again. Read More

Quick and easy without all of the complicated and hard to find Indian ingredients but very tasty. I added garlic onion zucchini chick peas and a pinch of cayenne pepper (left out the jalepenos). Can't imagine this one without garlic and onion! Read More

Very tasty. Spicy yet mild enough to taste a wide variety of flavors. Great wrapped in a tortilla for a fast in the car meal. Great served over simple white rice for a very filling satisfying vegan meal. Read More

This was delicious especially on the next day. I couldn't find jalapeno peppers or cilantro (i'm in England) so I used "bell" peppers and coriander instead. Next time I'll add onion garlic and spinach. This is the first successful curry I'v ever made! Read More

This was a really good and easy recipe. I added coconut milk as suggested by other reviewers but only about 1/6 of a can as to not make it a soupy consistency but it would be good like that too. I didn't have eggplant so added 1/2 a head of cabbage and 3 small zucchini. The combination of spices really works and I added about a teaspoon of garam masala. I will definitely make this again you can throw just about anything in it- cauliflower potatoes chickpeas and green peas sounds like a good combination for next time. Read More
