  1. Cut eggplant into 1 inch chunks. Thread eggplant and mushrooms onto 8 wooden or metal skewers. Place vegetable skewers in a nonporous, shallow dish, and spoon the marinade over everything. Cover, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  2. To make marinade: Mix together ground cumin, ground coriander, grated ginger, and 2 cloves crushed garlic in a large skillet or wok. Stir over high heat until fragrant. Remove from heat, and stir in soy sauce, oil, and lemon juice.
  3. To make peanut sauce: In a food processor, grind cumin seeds, coriander seeds, and 3 cloves garlic. Combine with onion, lemon juice, salt, chili powder, coconut milk, and peanut butter in a small saucepan. Stir in water. Simmer over medium low heat until it becomes a thick sauce. Transfer peanut sauce to a serving bowl.
  4. Preheat grill to medium heat and lightly oil grate.
  5. Remove skewers from marinade, and place on grill. Cook for about 10 to 15 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Serve immediately with peanut sauce.

Sorry but this one didn't work out well for me. Although I grilled the skewers for at least 15 minutes, the eggplant didn't seem to be cooked enough. The mushrooms were good but I don't think ...

Yummy! I changed a few things, though. I did use white button mushrooms, because there were no crimini available. Also, I did not cook the garlic for the marinade and I marinaded for 1 day. ...
