Aloo Baingan


  • 1/2 Tablespoon chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 3 small-to-medium eggplants
  • 1 cup fire roasted diced tomatoes (canned)
  • 1/2 tablespoon • Garam Masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic
  • 1 teaspoon • Ground coriander
  • 1/2 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup sweet potato puree (canned or homemade)
  • 1 tablespoon turmeric


  1. Slice the eggplant into 1/2″ thick rounds and then chop each round into quarters (you should be left with triangular-shaped pieces of eggplant).
  2. In a small bowl, mix the garlic, chili powder, coriander, turmeric, cumin and red pepper flakes with two tablespoons of water to make a paste.
  3. Heat 2 tablespoons of coconut oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the eggplant and fry for 5-7 minutes, or until tender.
  4. Add in the spice paste to the eggplant and cook for another few minutes, stirring often.
  5. Stir in the tomatoes and sweet potato puree. Cook for another few minutes, stirring often to ensure that everything is well-mixed.
  6. Remove pan from the heat and stir in the garam masala and lemon juice.
  7. Serve immediately over a bed of rice (or cauliflower “rice” if going Paleo).
