Tasty! We used 2 med. eggplant though, and 1/2 can diced fire-roasted tomatoes (I think it needed the whole can) instead of a fresh tomato. Also added 1 seeded, minced jalapeno. Only added 2 dashes cayenne and it was still a little hot for me. Had to broil eggplant 45-60 min. Followed suggestions and simmered 2 hours and blended in food processor at end, texture/consistency were perfect! The spices were a little off for me, not bad but not like in the restaurant. Next time I might omit the ground cumin and add a little lemon juice & garam masala. Also I would double the recipe as the portions are small. Served it over basmati rice and mixed in a little plain yogurt at the end per another baingan bharta recipe on this website. I didn't expect to like the yogurt but I did. Oh, and I might add some peas next time. All in all definitely worth making again!
