Cod eggplant red curry

Cod eggplant curry
Thai red curry paste 
500 g fresh cod
1 small eggplant
1 small onion
1 small kohlrabi (or chayote)
1 can coconut milk
salt

Make the curry paste. Slice the eggplant into quarters and sprinkle the salt all over it. Salt will draw out the vegetable’s moisture and bitterness (It’s a process known as “degorging“). Leave it in a colander for a half an hour.

Cut the onion, kohlrabi and cod in bite size pieces.

Heat the small amount of sunflower oil in a sauce pan and fry the onion on it for few minutes, until golden. Add the thai red curry paste and fry the spice mixture for about a minute. Add coconut milk, bring the mixture to boil, add the vegetables and cook for 10 minutes, add the cod and cook for 5 minutes more.

Serve on top of basmati rice.
