The thing about this are, you can’t compromise with the ingredient you used, used the freshest ingredient as you possibly could, that is the reason why I love seasonal and local produce, it is cheap, fresh and delicious.

I got the eggplant from my dearly girlfriend, which come from her father home garden, the eggplant of my dream, it is sweet, meaty and so aromatic, gave a contrast compliment into the strong spices thick broth. I enjoy the curry with some fresh cilantro, yesss it yumm and fluffy warm basmati rice, really good for this cold early winter. Madrid are ridiculously cold this season, just unusually very cold.

  2. After the onion are soft, put inside the curry paste and just sautéed for a while.
