Eggplant Stir Fry (Wambatu Moju)

Eggplant is a special vegitable for me because it gives a great combination with all the food. In Sri Lankan we call Eggplant "Wam Batu". There are so many recipes to make Eggplant , i make fried Eggplant  salad in coconut milk... this vegetable is so versatile.

  • 3 Small Eggplants.
  • 1 Tomato Chopped
  • 1 Onion Chopped.
  • 1 1/2 tsp of Red Chillie Flakes.
  • 1/3 tsp Turmaric
  • Salt.
  • Curry Leaves. (Optional)
  • 3 Tablsp pf Oil.

Slice the Eggplants thinly lengthwise, add 1/2 tsp of turmaric and 1/2 tsp of salt and deep fry until golden. (Keep aside). Heat the oil and add curry leaves and onions. Add the chillie flakes,turmaric,chopped tomatoes and salt. Stir it all up and cook on a very low flame with the lid on. After a few minutes see weather the onions have cooked, and add the fried eggplants and mix gently. Now turn on the flame a bit and and toss untill the eggplant gets coated with all the spicey gravy for 5 minutes. Remove from flame and its ready to serve. Its realy good with Chapathis and Rice. I served it with rice. Enjoy!
