How we love comfort food! Hanna could eat it every day, for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The cherry on the cake of each of these creamy, hearty dishes like that one is the homemade naan bread going along with it. If eggplant is prepared the right way, we love it! This eggplant curry is so simple but yet so delicious! It makes you want to continue eating until the pot is licked out.
To make things easier and faster, we usually peel the eggplant before. Like this you can guarantee that the eggplant pieces won't be chewy, which Manel absolutely does not like!
You can add any other veggie that you like, but sometimes, at least for curries, it is the simplicity of just one major ingredient that makes it so special. You can actually taste the eggplant like this.
We eat it with some basmati rice, and, as said above, our naan bread. But we could also imagine it with some potato or sweet potato chunks. We have never met a person that did not like this curry, which means a lot!
We love to top it up with some plant yogurt, sesame and fresh coriander.
It is gluten-free, sugar-free and full of great spices!
