Eggplant, Tomato and Green Onion Curry

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 15 mins

Adapted from Vij's restaurant in Vancouver. I have halved the recipe and reduced the amount of oil. This is delicious as a side or as a main. When buying eggplant, compare eggplants of the same size and buy the one that weighs the less. It will have more meat and fewer seeds.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Chop the green onions, the white parts, 1/4 inch long and the green parts 3/4 inch long. Set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine yogurt, chili powder, turmeric, cayenne and salt. Add eggplant, tomatoes and onions and stir well to make sure the veggies are well coated.
  3. In a shallow heavy pan, heat oil on medium-high heat for 45 seconds. Pour curry into the pan and stir well.
  4. Sauté about 3 minutes, reduce the heat to medium-low and cover. Simmer for another 10 minutes, stirring once halfway. Turn off the heat and stir once more.
  5. If you are not serving the curry right away, remove the lid or it will become to mushy.

Super curry! I followed the recipe as written (with fat free yogurt), but replaced the cayenne with garam masala. Just the right amount of spice and heat. I especially liked how easy it was to make. Thanx for sharing!

What an easy dish! I do admit, I added a little bit of chicken, a green bell pepper, and some carrot...and I also tripled the amount of curry sauce because I like to have my rice soaked in it. But everything else I kept the same, and was quite surprised at how the flavors came together! It was a very unexpected blending of tastes and was easy enough to finish in under half an hour.Thanks for posting--it makes me want to try out Vij's restaurant next time I'm in Vancouver.

Very easy to make, but overall for me a dissapointment. Tastes more like Americanized food rather than authentic.
