Serves 2 | Prep Time 5 minutes | Cook Time 30 minutes

Ingredients

1 lb. eggplant (about 2 small eggplants, white, Japanese, whatever!)
salt
Scant 1/4 cup olive oil
1 clove minced garlic
Heaping teaspoon curry paste (I used Pataks Biryani Curry)
1/2 cup coconut milk
Cilantro


If your eggplant is nice and firm, you don't need to peel it, otherwise go for it! Cut eggplant into 1/2 inch cubes and toss with salt.


Heat olive oil in a large, deep skillet.


Add garlic and curry paste and cook until fragrant, about a minute.


Add eggplant and cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, about 5 minutes, until eggplant begins to release some of the absorbed oil.


Continue to cook until tender, about 10-15 minutes. (As Mark notes, this time may vary depending on your eggplant, so keep an eye on it.)


Stir in coconut milk and cook another 10 minutes until eggplant is very soft. Adjust seasoning if needed. Serve over rice or with pita, garnished with chopped cilantro.

Notes

This is an incredibly creamy, flavorful, and healthy dish! Serve it over rice or with pita as a meal, or serve alone in small ramekins as an appetizer.
