GTTC - eggplant, zucchini and tomato curry

I decided to attempt making a eggplant curry that my mom makes (we call it indonesian curry but I'm not sure if it is really indonesian).  I don't have the exact recipe but I tried to guess based on my memory of watching my mom make the curry. I used all three types of eggplants and supplemented the curry with the zucchini.  I also used the jalapeno and the early girl tomatoes.
The curry tasted very good, not as good as when my mom makes it but good. I think I prefer the dish without zucchini so next time I'm going to just use the eggplants. Out of the three eggplant, the ichiban fit the best for this dish because it had better texture than the gretel and fairtale (I couldn't really tell these two apart) which were more creamy. I'm going to try to grill the gretel and fairytale next time to get a better taste of the eggplants.

Linking to Wendy's blog for the garden to table challenge!


  1. Good to know about the Ichiban vs. Fairy tail eggplants. Thanks for sharing :)

  2. Ben - I'll be curious to see what you thought about the eggplants too. I love the color on the fairytale though. Visually, that is my favorite.

  3. Looks delicious!! I can't wait to hear the report on the non ichibans on the grill!

  4. Holly - I wish I had a grill but I'll try in the oven.

    MKG - thank you.
