    Sweet Tortellini's Note:

    Taken from Ruta Kahate's "5 Spices, 50 dishes" and not modified in any way - this is the best curry I have ever eaten and had to share it with you. If you have a chance to buy Ruta's book do so - it is the best cookbook I have ever bought and the only cookbook I have done every recipe out of, it's just that amazing. A few notes: -- DO use seeds and finely grind them in a mortar and pestle - the flavors aren't quite the same if you use already ground spices. If you can't find seeds, then substitute it in the same quantities. -- If your family isn't keen on tough eggplant skins, you can peel them. -- Eggplants go from "undercooked and spongy" to "just well done pefection" to plain mush in a very short period of time. Watch them closely. We want a tofu consistency. -- Tomato sauce can be used in place of the small tomato in a pinch. About 1/3-1/2 cup will do. -- If you like less spicy, cut down on cayenne pepper. The Serranos actually cook down and taste like a bell pepper when done.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Slice the eggplants lengthwise in half and then crosswise into 1-inch chunks.
    2. 2
      Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat and saute the onion until softened.
    3. 3
      Add tomato,garlic,cayenne,coriander,cumin, turmeric, and saute until the tomato has completely disintegrated. If necessary, deglaze the pan by adding a few tablespoons of water and using a spatula to loosen the browned bits if the mixture starts sticking to the bottom.
    4. 4
      Add eggplants, chilies and salt, and mix well.
    5. 5
      Cover and cook over low heat until eggplant is soft, about 10 minutes.
    6. 6
      Add shrimp and stir gently,.
    7. 7
      When shrimp begins to turn pink, add coconut milk and water. Continue simmering, uncovered, until shrimp is cooked through, another 5-8 minutes.
    8. 8
      Very gently stir in the vinegar and remove from heat.
    9. 9
      Serve immediately and enjoy!
    10. 10
      This curry tastes even better the next day just reheat gently over low heat stirring carefully once in a while until just warmed to prevent overcooking the shrimp.
    11. 11
      Serve with any plain rice or quinoa - my favorite.
    12. 12

      Outstanding dish with complex flavor - better than an authentic restaurant! The eggplant and shrimp combo works so well.
