Alu Baigan is a West Indian curry made with potato and eggplant which is served with roti or rice and kadhri. This is a great vegetarian dish.
Followed this recipe exactly and it was DELICIOUS! im of indian heritage but had never made anything with eggplant before..but my husband asked me to make this...was happy to find the recipe here and he was raving about the taste. so that is proof that it was good-cause he's a good cook himself. tastes best with some fresh whole wheat chappatis and so healthy too! yum! thanks! - 10 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I saved the dish eventually, but I had to doctor it soo much, it wasn't recognizable from the original recipe. Sorry, but I'll find another recipe next time. - 20 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was such a hit with my boyfriend that his eyes lit up at the first bite! I decreased the amount of oil and substituted 1 tsp of ground mustard (added with the other spices) for the seeds. I also only had about half of the garam masala and caraway seeds on hand. But it was delicious anyway!! - 25 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
