Eggplant Curry

Eggplant is one of my favourit-est foods in the whole world!! There is a Malaysian restaurant not far from where we live that is famous for it's eggplant curry. Then when we were in Sri Lanka Aunty Daisy made it for us. It was to die for!

Aunty Daisy told me how she did it then I Googled it when I got back home and came up with a recipe that seemed like a good blend.

I've never been very good at cooking curries and Asian food. Perhaps it has something to do with my Anglo-Italian upbringing. Anyway, this curry turned out really gooood.

In a nutshell:
  • Prepare the eggplant then fry it up (no, it's not health food)
  • Fry an onion with a mixture of spices
  • Add some chopped tomatoes
  • Stir through some coconut milk
  • Lastly, stir through the eggplant.

Delish! Leave a comment if you want the full list of ingredients/instructions.

OK, you asked for it; here it is.

3 medium sized eggplants, chopped into bite-sized pieces
1 onion, chopped
4 tomatoes, chopped
1 teaspoon curry powder
2 cloves garlic, crushed
½ cup coconut milk

Sprinkle the chopped eggplant with salt and let sit for at least ten minutes to extract the bitter juice. Wash and dry, then fry in some oil.

Fry the onion and garlic in a small amount of oil until soft. Add the curry powder, ginger and chilli and cook until aromatic. Stir in the chopped tomatoes and coconut milk until combined. Lastly add the eggplant pieces and stir. Add sugar to taste.

I hope you like it as much as I did.
