  9. Padhu. I like this side dish and tried it many times at the fast food place in San Diego. I have tried making it many times at home and it was never the same. I will try yours this time. Thanks for sharing.

  11. Love this combo..Best with rice as well rotis..

  12. The combination of potato and eggplant is new to me...looks delicious!!!

  13. It was delicious! Thank you for the recipe! A couple of things: I would recommend cooking the potatoes 10-20 minutes, before adding the other ingredients in order, instead of the 5 minutes that you recommended. That way, the potatoes can get done at the same time the eggplant does (instead of the eggplant getting mushy while the potatoes are only half-cooked). Anyway, lovely flavors and combinations :)
