How to cook

9

Deglaze

I used a little water to remove some of the browned stuff from the pan bottom.

10

Fry eggplant

Take some paper towels and soak up a little of the liquid that's seeped off of the eggplant. Fry the eggplant slices on both sides in olive oil until browned.

11

Add eggplant to curry

When the eggplant slices are fried, add them to the base.

12

Add coconut milk/basil

Add the basil coconut milk puree. Stir it up. Let it come up to a simmer and you're ready to go. You might want to add a touch of salt, but be careful because there was salt on the eggplant.
