Brinjal based extra terrestrial looking curry

So here I go again...doing exactly what I said I would not, which is posting stuff that is not related to the idea I said I was about to post, never mind.
I made a really ugly looking, but sort of tasty vegetable curry made of random veggies at home and I wanted to capture the recipe so that I can repeat the atrocity again and again ... muahahahahhah (evil laughter!)

1 capsicum - orange or red
1 onion - chopped
Frozen veggies - a handful, any kind will do
Egg plant / brinjal - big one (warning - multiple little ones wont work)
Mushrooms - whatever kind you like
EVOO, salt, chilli powder, turmeric powder, garam masala, green chillies, mustard seeds, cumin seeds, curry leaves, hing, and any other masala that you may have stocked in your pantry and want to get rid of !

Pre heat oven to 350F
Spread a little oil over the egg plant, make a few cuts on it and roast in the oven for about 35 minutes or until soft
Heat the oil in a pan.
Add curry leaves, mustard seeds, cumin seeds and hing and saute until the seeds crackle
Add green chillies and fry for a bit
Add the chopped onion and saute until golden brown
Add chopped capsicum and saute until cooked
Add the frozen veggies and saute until cooked
Add mushrooms and saute for a bit
Scoop out the soft part or the insides of the roasted egg plant and mash it
Add the mashed egg plant insides to the pan and saute, until cooked
Add salt, and all the masala to this mixture, cook for 10 minutes
Add a dash of lemon juice and top with coriander leaves.

There you go! Enjoy!
