Nothing wrong with the recipe, but it should be mentioned that a big brinjal is difficult to manage as far as cooking over a flame goes, as the insides take a very long time to cook. My stuff came out pretty good, after I added a pinch of sugar.

this recipe was great! my husband loved it. not too hot at all...i didn`t cut up the chilies and this gave the perfect amount of hotness. maybe the others cut up the chilies which would def make it too hot. i also added some peas which tasted delicious. anyway, i will definitely be making this again!

The taste was very good. The tomatoes can be pureed for a gravy.
