IMAG4538

Eggplants or Aubergines are low in fat and provide essential nutrients. I decided to make eggplants in coconut curry few days back. I used fresh coconut to make paste. The spices for the curry included mustard seed paste.The richness to the curry is provided by adding coconut paste to it.If you want to thicken the curry further, you can add mashed potatoes. I love the flavor curry leaves impart to it. You should try it, you will surely love it. This can be eaten both with rice or chapatis or breads. serve and surprise your guests and family with this exotic spicy curry.
