    Very nice recipe, we can make it fast also


  8. A tasty recipe, for sure, but I think you’ll find you need more liquid to have this dish come out well. I would suggest that you add 1/4 cup water, after you add the potatoes and brinjals (be sure to toss them well, to coat them with spice and oil). Bring it to a boil, cover, reduce heat to medium, and cook for 10-15 minutes, depending on how big your potato pieces are. I’d suggest checking for doneness after 10 min; and to see if you need to add a bit more water; no more than a tablespoon or two. By the time every thing is cooked you’ll have no water left, so you may need to reduce the heat after 10 min, if it needs to cook more. As a side note, this is very spicy; if you like less heat reduce the chili powder. Also, Yukon Gold potatoes work very well, here.

    Thanks for this tasty recipe; I had nothing like this in my cook books.
