To get a really smokey taste of the aubergine, I adde some oil and put the aubergine in the fireplace on the coals.. Or... I also read that you can put an iron little bowl with hot coal and a tsp oil in the middle of the curry, and than put a lid on the saucepan.. Really delicious taste :)

It was like eating in a hotel. Thnx a ton for the recipe. Actually I had to cook in the oven for a little over 20 mins, since I felt only one side was cooked fully. Will make it again some other time!
