  • Saute for 2-3 minutes until onion gets golden.
  • Add the peppers and the garlic and let them simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  • Put the fresh onions and let them simmer for 1 minute.
  • Then add the eggplants in high heat and simmer for 2-3 minutes until golden.
  • Add the tomato sauce, coconut cream and let it cook until it gets thick and eggplants are cooked.

  • Instead of Eggplants, you can use peas, beans or zucchini. They make equally delicious dishes.
  • You can add the spices you want.
  • Do not replace the coconut cream with coconut water. The cream gives a thickness to the dish.
  • The tomato paste just gives color and nice consistency to the recipe so do not omit it.
  • You can make it as thick as you wish. If you prefer it soupier just add a little bit of water.
