I did not like this recipe at all. I love lentils, eggplant and garam masala, but something about this recipe really did not work for me.
Lentils with Eggplant and Garam Masala

I was really looking forward to this dish, and could not have been more disappointed. It commits the worst food sin: it is bland, mushy, and flavorless. I wish I could get a refund on all the ingredients that were lost in the line of duty.

This recipe was fine but not exciting. I followed the recipe exactly and served it with steamed cauliflower. The flavors were flat and uninteresting, and although this dish is a nice vegetarian option that filled me up, it's not a dish I would make again. There are, I think, much tastier Indian recipes than this one.

For the amount of spices used this dish was remarkably bland. Majority of the flavor comes from the eggplant and zucchini, but in such a way that I would prefer to simply grill eggplant and zucchini.

We thought this was very good. I made it exactly as written. I served with Naan and Indian pickles. I will be making this again as I always have zucchini and eggplant from our garden.

I agree that this was a little bland, but would not call it bad. Tender lentils and eggplant, and needs just a bit more of the Garam Masala, some tomato paste, and maybe a bit more oil added.
