Curry is definitely one of my favorite meals. It is perfectly flavored, a little bit spicy and so creamy. Such perfect comfort food. This vegan eggplant and chickpea curry are one of those meals you will want to cook every week!
The full recipe is vegan and naturally gluten-free.
The eggplant gave the curry a special creaminess and softness. I also used coconut cream, so it is super creamy and extra delicious. Curry is simply perfection. Serve it with rice and fresh veggies.
Curry is so flavorful
You can cook curry with different types of veggies and always create a new flavor, which is totally awesome.
Feel free to add whatever you have at home and I'm sure you will create amazing flavors. However, don't forget to add spices! I suggest you buy a curry spice mix because it is a lot easier than buying every single herb.
So now we have flavors from veggies and spices, but the curry needs something to be even better, that's why coconut milk/cream is commonly used. It gives an almost tropical taste, but trust me, it is so delicious.
Let's make this incredible eggplant and chickpea curry
First, chop eggplant into a smallier pieces and grate a carrot, so you will have eveyrhing ready for you.
Put the oil into a pan and fry the garlic until fragrant, then add in curry mix spice and tomato puree. This will create an amazing irresistible flavor. Saute for a few seconds, but keep an eye on it. It can burn really easily.

Now, you can add in chopped eggplant, shredded carrot, and cooked chickpeas. Saute for a few minutes and add in coconut milk from a can and water.
