  • 2 Tbsp. oil, such as coconut or olive
  • 1 large onion, diced, about 1 1/2 cups
  • 1 tsp. curry powder
  • 1 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 tsp. ground coriander
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely minced
  • A 1 inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and finely minced

  • 1 large eggplant, about 1 1/2 pounds, cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely minced
  • 1 cup vegetable broth or water
  • Red pepper flakes

  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add the onion and sauté, stirring often, until softened, about 6 minutes.
  2. Next add the curry powder, turmeric, ground coriander, ground cumin, salt, minced garlic and ginger. Sauté, stirring until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  3. Then add the diced tomatoes, eggplant and jalapeño pepper. Stir the mixture to combine thoroughly.
  4. Finally add the broth or water and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer, covered, until the eggplant is tender, about 12 to 15 minutes.
