It would be useful if the Print versions of the recipes showed the times and number of servings.

Just awful! Wish I'd seen reviews before attempting.

Just read the reviews- wish I had. This was a joke. Bland, odd texture and hugely disappointing. 0 stars.

Most disappointing. Had my doubts as i blitzed the onion etc. I wonder if the person who devised this recipe actually cooked it. Creamy? I don't think so. Bin it.

Do not make this. Horrendous. Watery and bland. Waste of food. It was hard to think of something to do with it to salvage it.

I made this tonight for the 1st will also be the last time!! I am always willing to give things a try, but this was awful, most of it was left on my plate. I'm afraid it gets no stars from me as there is nothing positive I can find to write

Very bland, usually love Good Food recipes but this is the worst Ive tried. Would not recommend.

I thought the dish had a nice subtle flavour, though I added slightly more ginger & curry powder than the recipe stated. I found the consistency, however, to be a little odd. Probably wouldn't rush to make this again.

just horrible, the onion paste just made for a really bitter aftertaste, we couldn't handle the idea of wasting the yoghurt and cooked aubergines on it, so gave in and ended up with fish fingers! the aubergines will be used elsewhere.

Very bland indeed. Definitely needs more ingredients adding to this dish. Maybe cumin and raisin and garlic will lift this dish into a more enjoyable dinner.

Add less water & maybe Garam masala for additional flavor
