  4. Very delicious... We had a get together and I made this for Lunch. All my friends liked it.
    Thanks for the wonderful recipe.

  5. Great dish, very yummy. It's a pity that I was so hungry after work and wanted to do it fast. I should have fried the brinjals for longer, so they would be all brown-gold, like yours. I'll bet it would be even better then.
