Jer: Afghan Kadu

Rachel and I made this kadu together on Sunday night for our other two sisters. We picked up our ingredients at a great new Indian market a block away from Jen's house. The Chinese eggplant looked beautiful as did their pumpkin so we decided to make the kadu with both vegetables.

I liked the kadu but found it too sweet so next time I might consider only adding half the called for amount of sugar. Like Elaine, my rice didn't come out dry like Indian or Afghan rice should, instead it was more wet like Asian rice. It actually tasted like really good risotto. In any event, the flavors were strong and delicious and I really enjoyed the yogurt sauce. Jen's husband had seconds and we all agreed it was a fun and interesting dish to enjoy together.
