cookbook challenge: curries with aubergines

Next recipes are curries with aubergines. One aubergine is so big that I can use it to make two different curries^^

So here I go:

Green Tofu Curry

Incrediants (4 portions)
600 g Tofu, sliced in dices
4 tbs peanut oil
200 g brokkoli
2 small thai-aubergines, sliced in dices
200g sugar sprouts
10 g ginger
2 onions, sliced in stripes
1 garlic clove
2 tbs green curry paste
150 ml vegetable stock
400 ml coconut milk
1-2 tbs lime juice
2 tbs light soy sauce


Heat 2 tbs oil in a pan or wok, fry tofu on middle heat then take it out and keep it warm.

Heat the rest of the oil in the pan or wok and fry ginger and onions on middle heat while stiring. Press garlic in to the pan/wok, stir in curry paste and shortly fry it. Add the aubergines. stock and coconut milk and let it cook about 5 minutes.

Fold Brokkoli in to the pan, shortly cook it, then taste with salt, pepper, lime juice and soy sauce. Add sugar sprouts and tofu and heat it up in the curry.

Separate the curry into bowls and serve it with basmati rice.

This curry was really delicious. I love green curry in general but the combination of the spices and vegetables is good, I totally enjoyed it^^


Beef curry with thai-aubergines

Incrediants (4 portions)
450 g beef, sliced in pieces
4 kaffir lime leaves
150 g thai aubergines, cutted in halfs
1 tbs oil
3 tbs green curry paste
400 ml coconut milk
1-2 tbs fish sauce
1 tsp sugar


Heat oil in a pan and rost the curry paste in it for 1-2 minutes till it starts smelling. Add half of the coconut milk and let it cook for 5 minutes, stir sometimes till the surface becomes oily.

Add beef, lime leaves, fish sauce, sugar and aubergines and let it cook for 3 minutes. Add the rest of the coconut milk and let it cook till the meat and the aubergines are done.

Taste the beef curry with salt and serve with basmati rice.

The beef came up very good, I was really surprised. There are not much incrediants but the taste is very good nevertheless. I didn't miss anything. The taste was intense but not to much of anything. The combination of curry paste, fish sauce and coconut milk is also pretty well, I will remember that for other recipes^^
