Aubergine and Yellow Tomato Curry.

One of my favorite vegetables is aubergines and I always try and cook with them at least once a week. These wonderful purple aubergines used in this recipe are home grown from a friends garden. They are very young and tender with very few seeds inside them and they taste delicious.

I have paired them with these beautiful Yellow vine tomatoes that I picked up from the local farmers market. The tomatoes are sweet and juicy and are perfect in salads, although you can also cook with them by roasting them on the wine for pasta sauces or adding them to any curries dish too.

With these two lovely ingredients, I wanted to keep the recipe simple so I made this tasty Aubergine and yellow tomato curry which went really well paired with hot chapattis and rice.

  10. I love the color of the aubergines and tomatoes in your curry! I don't often cook with aubergines myself but do love Indian curry or fry recipes that have it as an ingredient.

  11. I've been looking for more vegetarian dishes to try so this is golden. Shamefully, I've never even heard of the word aubergine...but I googled it and we have plenty of eggplants here! :)

  18. This sounds so good, I'd love to give it a try soon - I've never tried to make curry before, but we love eating it for sure haha!! Also so curious how British and American English came to have such vastly different words for Aubergine / Eggplant hmmm... any idea?

  20. This looks delicious. will surely try it out in my home. Thanks for the recipe.
