Didn't love this

I wanted to love this, and expected to, and was happy in advance to have a flavorful plant-based dinner available, but it didn't measure up. Flavors were good, but the eggplant dice wasn't cooked, and didn't cook/soften by heating up in the microwave. The majority of the pieces were tough. Nothing beats a good silky eggplant dish (think Ottolenghi's roasted eggplant recipes). This wasn't it.

Flavor is very smooth and eggplant is perfectly prepared. My husband loves this meal.. I am not a big stew fan but I like this, and it is the flavor and ease of prep..

Eggplant too hard and flavors not meld

I’m the outlier but guess I just don’t like eggplant prepared this way. I usually have eggplant roasted and not in chunks like this :-/ I didn’t love the flavors either — some spice is a little too strong. I didn’t find the chutney was needed either and added a strange contradicting flavor that didn’t work in my opinion. I haven’t found I like any of the Indian style dishes but the good news is there are plenty of great other choices!


This is one of our favorites. I fry up some naan as an accompaniment. Hubs loves chickpeas, and loves this dish, even though he is a meat lover :-D. Balance of flavors is nice. Rice was fluffy and a great side. I added a smidge of red pepper flakes for a bit of a kick. It is mild.


This dish was very tasty. Our first time trying something like this. Well balanced flavors, just a touch of heat and delicious. Good size portions.
