  • Mince garlic, and shallots. Peel and cut potatoes and carrots into 1" inch cubes, dice eggplant and chayote squash in 1" cubes. Mix curry powder with a little water to make paste. add warm water to a dime sized piece of tamarind, mix until you get the tamarind mixed in with the water, discard pulp/seeds. Set aside.
  • Heat the 3 tbsp oil in a pot on medium heat. When the oil is hot fry Ginger, Shallots, Garlic, and cinnamon stick until fragrant (Careful not to burn). Add curry powder paste. fry it until fragrant and oil comes to the surface of paste. add coconut milk and cook for a minute. add spice bag of spices (cardamom, cloves, star anise). add salt. add water and tamarind juice.
  • Add potatoes, carrots and chayote squash and cook potato until almost tender. add eggplant. Stir every couple of minutes, so that the bottom won’t burn and everything is cooked evenly.
  • If you like your curry watery, just add water a little at a time. if you would like a thicker milder curry add more coconut milk.
  • The Potatoes should be tender but not soft until it turns to mush.
  • After cooking remove spice bag.
