Smoky, roasted eggplant is combined with spices, tomatoes, and fresh herbs to bring you this delicious family favorite curry!
Char the outside skin of each eggplant by placing them directly on the open flame of a gas burner. After 2-3 minutes or as the outside skin starts to char, rotate the eggplant so that it is evenly charred on all sides. Alternatively you can grill or roast the eggplant alone, but then you will NOT get the smokey flavor of the eggplant.
Asafetida - Most brands combine asafetida with wheat. So omit for gluten-free option unless you are sure it is certified gluten-free.
Eggplant - If you do not have an open flame to smoke the eggplant, you can skip smoking the outer skin and simply roast in the oven. You will not get that smokey flavor, but the dish will still turn out delicious!
