recipe? for eggplant & cauliflower curry
Well, here’s the plan of approach for the eggplant & cauliflower curry
Char eggplant skin under broiler and then scrape out the goody once the eggplants have cooled enough to be handled.
Set to making basmati rice with turmeric.
Melt a chunk of ghee. Grill down onions. Add minced garlic and ginger. Add diced cilantro stems and jalepeno pepper meat. Add spices… I think I’ll crack open the garum masala mix from Penzey’s and see how that does.
Once the spices have grilled a bit, add the eggplant and a can of tomatoes.
Cut off just the cauliflower heads, in rather small pieces. Mix the cauliflower into the pan.
Taste and fiddle. And cilantro leaves?
Problem: I cut the cauliflower finely because nothing else had much texture, but that leaves me with cauliflower stems to figure out what to do with.
