Roasted Eggplant Sweet Potato Indian Curry with Cheese Paratha Flat-Bread – wholesome and flavorful seasonal vegetarian curry. Perfect to make ahead!
I decided to go whole grain and spicy and made this delicious roasted eggplant and sweet potato curry with whole grain paratha flat-bread. Sounds good? It surely does, if you like eggplants, sweet potatoes and Indian food. If you don’t, you should give it a try anyway. I used to hate so many dishes I love now. Taste becomes different over time, and it’s always a good thing to give food from your “no” list a second chance. If you are already in love with Indian food, sweet potatoes and eggplants, I don’t have to tell you how great they are. This particular curry is hearty, vegetarian and very flavorful. It’s a perfect meal for November dinners, not only because of seasonal ingredients, but also because it has a soul-warming stew consistency, which is well-loved in this time of the year. I used eggplants, sweet potatoes, tomatoes, coconut milk and a lot of spices for this curry, including cumin, turmeric, garlic, ginger, coriander, red chilli, cloves, garam masala, cardamom and my favorite smoked paprika.
I don’t have to tell you how incredibly aromatic it was. Spices play the first fiddle in Indian cuisine. When you toast them on a pan, they give you all their stunning aroma, as well as flavor and nutrients for zero calories! Isn’t that wonderful?
Let me tell you about my paratha flat-bread cravings. First of all, I love them and I absolutely adore the idea of dipping a piece of flat-bead paratha into the steaming hot curry. The thing is, I wasn’t satisfied with plain paranthas. I wasn’t in the mood for all-purpose flour either. I had to do something with it. The idea came to me when I was chopping onions for my eggplant curry. I had to make whole grain parathas and put onions and cheese in them! Let me share my recipe for eggplant sweet potato curry with whole grain cheese paratha flat-bread with you. It serves four but on the next day it tastes even better, so it’s great as a make-ahead meal. I hope I gave you enough reasons to try this eggplant sweet potato curry in your own kitchen.
