If you know me, you know I love things that are hot and spicy. That goes for food too ;) This curry has sweet potato and eggplant, both of which I love and makes me think that fall is really here!
Red Curry with Sweet Potato and Eggplant
*real recipe calls for green curry, but use whatever suits your fancy/ what you can find
1 tbsp oil
1 onion, chopped
2 tablespoons curry paste
1 eggplant, quartered and sliced
1 1/2 cups coconut milk (I used light coconut milk)
1 cup vegetable stock
1 orange sweet potato, cubed
2 tsp. brown sugar
2 tbsp. lime juice
- Heat the oil in large wok or frying pan. Add onion and curry paste, stirring of medium heat for 3 minutes. Add eggplant (depending on size of pan add as much eggplant as desired) and cook for an additional 5 minutes
- Pour in coconut milk and stock, bringing to a boil. Reduce heat and let simmer for 5 minutes.
- Add desired amount of sweet potato (half - whole), stirring occasionally until vegetables are soft and tender.
- Mix in sugar and lime juice with the curry. Season to taste with salt.
- Serve over steamed rice
It was warm, spicy, delicious, and filling. Best part was, Shaun even liked it! Let's just say that he likes his meat and it's rare a meal of his doesn't have some type of meat in it. Win for me!
Now that I have extra eggplant and sweet potato, any suggestions for how to cook them or good recipes you know of?
