This mildly spiced creamy Dhal and Eggplant Curry is a great accompaniment to Indian flat breads and rice. Plus it is nutritious and very delicious.
Dhal curry is the bedrock of Indian curries. It is a nutritious curry made up of mainly dhal (lentils), some vegetables, and spices. This curry is relatively mild and is delicious eaten with roti (Indian flat bread) or rice. It is a healthy source of protein and dietary fiber.
Adding Vegetables to a Basic Dhal Curry
Dhal curry is Ro-Jiro’s favorite curry and so I cook it every now and then. I have a tried and tested basic version which I add vegetables to depending on what I have on hand. My favorite is this Dhal and Eggplant Curry.
I prefer to use the slim and long Asian eggplants because the flesh is tender and they cook relatively fast. The skin is peeled to keep with the creamy texture of the dhal (lentils).
I usually serve this Dhal and Eggplant Curry with either store bought or homemade Roti Canai (roti pratha) but it is equally delicious served with rice.
Enjoy…..and have a wonderful day!
