Spicy Goan Shrimp Curry With Eggplant

READY IN: 28mins




  • Slice the eggplants lengthwise in half and then crosswise into 1-inch chunks.
  • Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat and saute the onion until softened.
  • 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.
  • Add eggplants, chilies and salt, and mix well.
  • Cover and cook over low heat until eggplant is soft, about 10 minutes.
  • Add shrimp and stir gently,.
  • When shrimp begins to turn pink, add coconut milk and water. Continue simmering, uncovered, until shrimp is cooked through, another 5-8 minutes.
  • Very gently stir in the vinegar and remove from heat.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!
  • 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.
  • Serve with any plain rice or quinoa - my favorite.
