Burmese Eggplant Curry

Serves 4-6 Prep Time 5 minutes   Cook Time 40 minutes   Rated:

Could there be an easier curry? We don't think so, plus it is practically vegan (replace shrimp with miso and you're away!)

The silkiness of the eggplant when softened and combined with all the flavours is magnificent. It may be a bit of a stretch to call this Burmese, but let's go with it shall we?
