CURRY CHICK PEAS AND EGGPLANT FETTUCCINE

Trinis love curry and many people also love pasta so why not combine them! Believe me, this curry pasta dish is one you will love!

YIELD: 3 servings

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 can channa, drained and rinsed
  • 1 – 1 1/2 cup eggplant, peels and diced
  • 1 tbsp coconut powder
  • 1 1/2 cup water (or as needed)
  • 1 small onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Hot pepper as you like
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tbsp JGM Products curry powder
  • Pinch of roasted geera
  • 1 1/2 tbsp green seasoning
  • 3-4 curry leaves
  • 1 1/2 tbsp vegetable oil
  • Approx. 100-150g Fettuccine

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Boil fettuccine according to package instructions. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil in a pot over low heat.
  3. Sauté onions, garlic, pepper.
  4. Add curry leaves and curry powder. Keep stirring for 2-3 minutes. This is to toast the powder to help release the flavors. Add a little water only if necessary to prevent any sticking or burning.
  5. Add roughly 3-4 tbsp water. Keep stirring until a paste a formed.
  6. Add eggplant pieces. Mix well to coat with the curry.
  7. Add water and coconut milk powder. Cook until egg plant is almost tender and/or begins to melt.
  8. Add chickpeas, green seasoning and salt to taste.
  9. Continue cooking until the eggplant is fully cooked through. Add a pinch of roasted geera just before it is completely finished.
  10. Once the curry sauce has thickened up, add boiled fettuccine. Mix well.
  11. Garnish with chopped chives/parsley/celery.
  12. Enjoy your curry pasta!

NOTE:

  • Honestly I totally forgot to measure the amount of fettuccine used. Just in case you boiled too much, you can save it for another dish.
  • You can use any type of pasta you like.
  • You can also serve the curry and pasta separately instead of combining them.
  • You can use any other vegetable.
  • You can also eliminate the eggplant and use only chickpeas.
  • If you don’t have curry leaves, it’s no problem.
