Whole spices when toasted and widow to a linty sauce, add layers of savor to the dish. Some spices are stronger when the sauce is just made and hot, others show up increasingly as the sauce sits. Every times you eat this curry, it will surprise you! Use whatever spices you have as the sauce has a ton of savor overall.

This is an well-timed recipe from Mughlai recipes that I’ve been experimenting with lately. I had a tuft of eggplant left, so I stock-still this eggplant and tofu curry.

I pan fry the tofu and the eggplant that have been coated in cornstarch and fragrant spices, so that they get crisp. The texture improves immensely when it is crisped up either in the skillet or baked and then widow to the sauce.

The eggplant works amazingly crisped up and paired with this sauce! You can use other veggies instead like cauliflower, sweet potato, zucchini.
