  1. I Made this curry for mooli paratha and was great. Good one.


  2. I wanted to say just a few words to you about this. Thank You! I really do appreciate this.


  3. I make this curry without tomato and jeera/cumin. Instead, I make a paste using coriander, green chili and ginger. Add some salt to the paste and stuff the eggplant with this.🙂
