Ingredients

    1-1/2 lb waxy potatoes
    1-1/2 lb eggplant
    1 tbsp canola or olive oil
    1 jalapeno
    1 tbsp minced garlic
    1 tsp mustard seeds

Put the oil in skillet. Heat.
Add chiles, garlic, mustard, and cumin.
Cook a couple of minutes.
Add potatoes and eggplant, along with 1/4 cup water and a sprinkling of salt & pepper, and cover.

    A waxy potato is a red potato or a "new" potato. In other words, not a russet, or baking potato. - 8/4/09

    Nice. I served it with cabbage and zuchini, basmati rice, and salad dressed with olive oil and lemon for a full vegetarian meal. - 5/31/09

    Calling it "spicy" was an under statement...Wow! It blew me away. Next time I will not use the Jalapeno. And I think I'd let the potatoes cook a little by themselves, as my eggplant got kind of mushy. But I like it & will make it again. - 10/21/09

    We don't care for spicey so left those seasonings out. But, the combo is good to add your own tastes to. - 8/4/09

    I'm not much of a cook, but this sounds great! I'm going to add extra firm tofu for a complete vegetarian meal in one pan with added protein.
    Okay, I made it and ended up adding rotel for color and an extra jalapeno to balance out the tofu and extra eggplant I added and it was great! TY - 10/20/09

  • I wasn't expecting too much of this since it's so simple. I was completely happily surprised that it was delicious! About 2 bites in my husband said "this is phenomenal! We're making this a lot!" no objection from me- easy, quick, and a nice way to do Indian healthily. - 5/9/11

  • My family likes it very spicey and I don't I only tried a little bit because it was very spiey with one pepper. My husband didn't remove the seeds though asked him to either leave it out next time or use just a tiny bit of it without any seeds. It really looked good too. It is a keeper. - 10/30/09
