- 1/2 a cup coconut cream (extra concentrated coconut milk) shopping list
- 1 level tsp salt (or to taste) shopping list
- 1/2 a tsp sugar (or to taste) shopping list
How to make it
- Pop the shallots, garlic, coconut, ground coriander , ground pepper and ground cumin into a blender or liquidizer and blitz to a fine paste with as little water as possible.
- Cut a cross into eggplant 3/4 way up from the butt, keeping eggplant whole. This helps the eggplant to cook faster while remaining whole.
- Heat 1/3 of a cup of oil in a wok or deep pan till smoking hot and fry the shrimp only till they turn pink. Do not overcook. Remove shrimp from pan leaving the oil behind, and set shrimp aside.
- Add another tbs or so oil to pan and when hot fry the coconut and spice mixture, till fragrant and glistening. Add the sour cream and coconut cream and stir till almost dry.
- Add eggplant, stir then add 2 cups water. Bring to the boil, reduce heat and simmer till eggplant is tender, taking care to retain it's shape and wholeness. By now the liquid in the pan should have reduced to a thick coating gravy.
- Return shrimp to the pan and stir through. Season according to taste. Simmer for a minute or two then turn off heat. Serve with white rice or Malay Coconut Rice.

I had some bad curry over the years, so I was kind of scared of it, but my husband talked me into trying some, and I'm gradually adding new ones into my repertoire. This sounds really good, especially with that coconut rice recipe of yours =)aimee in Studio City loved it
