Thai Chicken and Eggplant (Aubergine) Curry

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by PalatablePastime

Adapted from a recipe in "It Rains Fishes". Originally made with pork, tastes great either way. Try to use Thai basil, but any type of basil will do in a pinch.

This recipe was outstanding. I was amazed at how easy it was to prepare. I think I would use Legs and thighs.
