Yummy Low Carb and Vegetarian Indian Dish – Eggplant Masala

Another wonderful Indian dish to bring to the weekend table. In India you celebrate Diwali around this time a year, which is a Light Celebration as a memory of Buddhist God Rama,  so why not go for some Indian food this weekend and join the celebration. Yesterday I posted a Mushroom Curry to get you started.

2 yellow onions
4 tbsp chopped fresh ginger
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp coriander

This is how

Marinate
1. Slice eggplant and salt to get some water out of them. Then chop them and bake them 15 minutes in oven 180 C hot air (356 F), if you don’t have hot air, just add 25 C (77F) to the number.

2. Meanwhile you mix all ingredients into a marinade.

3. Let eggplants cool a little bit before mixing with the marinade. Let marinate 30 minutes.

4. Fry them until they’re fairly soft and got some color.

Sauce

2. Fry together about 5 minutes.

3. Chop tomatoes.

4. Add cumin, coriander, tomatoes, honey, tomato paste and Garam Masala and let simmer 20 minutes.

5. Add cream, stir it and then add eggplants. Let simmer another 5 minutes.

Enjoy!
