MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 3, 2008

It wasn't that I didn't like the recipe, it was just missing something...I've had many African dishes as my boyfriend is from there and I just can't place what ingredient is missing. I'd also add about a cup less of eggplant as well--there was too much. All and all, an okay recipe.
