Curried Eggplant in Tomato Sauce

READY IN: 33mins
Recipe by Brian Holley

Aubergines are an important vegetable in Indian households. Here is a very tastey and easy dish to prepare. This makes enough for four people as a side dish to accompany a meat or fish curry.

Loved it: Simple. Fast. Delicious.<br/>Served with Basmatti rice.<br/>My husband who does not fancy Eggplants repeated the dish twice :)<br/>I did not use chili since I am breastfeeding but I believe it would add an extra kick and be awesome. Instead I used just a little of Cayenne pepper.
