Eggplant, Chickpea and Tomato Curry

Madras curry powder is a blend of many spices, including cardamom, chiles, coriander and cumin. Since it is hotter than regular curry powder, it adds a delicious kick to this Indian-style, late-summer vegetable stew of eggplant, tomatoes and chickpeas in a sublime coconut-ginger broth. Prepare the recipe with vegetable stock for an excellent vegetarian main course.

  1. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  2. 2 red onions, each cut into 8 wedges
  3. One 1/2-inch piece of fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  4. 2 garlic cloves, minced
  5. 1 1/2 tablespoons Madras curry powder
  6. 1 eggplant (1 1/2 pounds), cut into 1-inch dice
  7. One 14-ounce can of chickpeas, drained
  8. 1 cup chicken stock or low-sodium broth
  9. 3/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
  10. 12 cherry tomatoes, halved
  11. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  12. 1/2 cup cilantro leaves
  1. In a very large, deep skillet, heat the olive oil. Add the onions and cook over moderate heat until they begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Add the ginger and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the curry powder and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the eggplant, chickpeas, stock and coconut milk and bring to a simmer. Cover and cook over moderate heat until the eggplant begins to soften, about 8 minutes.
  2. Stir the tomatoes into the curry, cover and simmer until the eggplant is tender, about 3 minutes longer. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the cilantro and serve.
Serve With White rice and yogurt.

Suggested Pairing

Full-bodied New Zealand Pinot Gris.
