This version differs from mine. This is Auntie Noi's true authentic Thai version. My boss told me the Thai word for Auntie is Pi. So I named this Pi Noi's.

These photos were taken in June 2005 during a cookout at AG Home where Pi Noi was cooking a Charity Dinner.

I have yet to get the right ingredients for this dish to cook at home. But here is the recipe.



this is what I cooked today : 17 November 2005


This is the Thai Palm Sugar used.


Some of the ingredients shown


Pea sized Egg Plants

Recipe serves 6 persons
Ingredients
3 tbsp Thai Green Curry Paste(can get premix from Thai Grocery or make your own)
1 litre Coconut milk(Canned ones are fine)
300ml water
10 pcs pea sized eggplants
10 pcs green eggplants(small ones)
2 pcs red chilli(sliced)
1 can of button mushrooms
1 sprig Thai Basil leaves
1 stalk of Lemon Grass(sliced)
1 cm Galangal, sliced
1 pc Thai Palm Sugar
4 pcs Chicken Thigh(boneless, discard skin, sliced)
1 carrot(sliced)
salt to taste or 1 tbsp Fish Sauce

Method
1. Heat up wok and add 3 tbsp corn oil to heat.
2. Add curry paste and chopped lemon grass, galangal to fry till fragrant.


3. Add chicken to fry for 2 mins over high heat.
4. Add coconut milk, water, carrots and red chilli to cook for another 5 mins.
5. Add eggplants, berries, basil leaves, button mushrooms to cook.
6. Simmer over medium heat for 10 mins or when egg plants are soft.


7. Add Palm sugar, stir to dissolve in high heat. Add salt to taste.
8. Turn off heat and serve warm with rice.

Notes from Pi Noi
Water is added to prevent the coconut milk from turning into curd like.
Palm Sugar is fragrant and mildly sweet. Adds a certain fragrance to the curry.
Pea sized eggplants are only found in Thai Grocery shops (at Golden Mile Complex, Beach Road, or Tekka Market Singapore).
To add more flavour to this, she added Carrots and button Mushrooms. This is optional.
If you want this to be more spicy, blend 8 pcs fresh green chilli padi into the paste.
Preferably to use Fish Sauce..if not, use salt.

its quite firm despite being cook in curry gravy. Pi Noi said this type is better as it stays in shape after high heat cooking. the others will just disintegrate after high heat cooking.

well, you need to be a Brinjal/egg plant lover to enjoy eating this. its a bit different from the regular long purple ones. dunno how to explain to you.. island

Gina, thanks for the info. The store only sells them in a big pack, that's why I wanted to know how it's like. I think I'll like it Wink

the berries are quite big about 1 cm in diameter. Pi Noi says usually people don't eat the berries. it just use to flavour the curry. its bitter in taste.

she used to grow the plant in AG Home's herb garden. When she quit the Home, she uprooted all the herb plants. :cry:

You're right.. I had another look, the green pepper berries are much smaller

Gina, this curry is heavenly delicious!!! The eggplant tastes good, actually not much different from one of our asian long eggplants'. Haven't found the berries and palm sugar (I subsituted with pure cane sugar), will continue to search.... as I really love this curry! Thanks zillions, Gina, you're always so generous in sharing!

Hi Gina,

Thanks for sharing this recipe! I get to love this only lately because one of my church member brought it for pot bless. Can I substitute this with the normal basil?

I haven't heard this word "pot bless" for a long time coffee

as to the basil, I think not. thai basil has its own distinct flavour, not overpowering. if you use the 'normal' basil, it may spoil the flavour.

the thai basil is milder. has a very distinctive flavour.

ohhhhhhh...i absolutely luurrvvvvveee green curry! i bought some green curry paste from bangkok when i was there a couple months back (come to think about it, green curry paste was the ONLY things i bought!). i was trying so hard to look for the little eggplants but i couldn't find any...so in the end had to use our regular size ones and true enough, they disintegrated until they all 'disappeared' into the curry. will try this recipe when i'm free one of these days....*drool*

Cookingmonster

you can get all the big and small eggplants from Tekka market!!
as for the green curry paste, so far, only at Golden Mile complex sells it. Many stalls/shops there.

the last seafood tour on 28 Nov, the ladies were introduced to Thai curry cooking(introduction to the various ingredients used). They now know where to get all the diff types of eggplants, herbs, spices used in Thai tom yam, green curry, red curry cooking!

yummy
