My Sri Lankan style Aubergine Curry is based on a favourite recipe from Rick Stein’s Sri Lankan Crab Curry found in his beautiful Far Eastern Odyssey (Uncle Rick is one of my favourite celebrity chefs- he really understands food, its origins and people). I have made versions of the crab curry with great success and thought the aubergines would stand up to and display these flavours wonderfully. Featured by Woolworths for the MasterChef SA series.
I was given the challenge of preparing dishes with combinations chosen by Medi Deli - in this case their little pack of marinated octopus salad with their tahini paste. I decided to keep the octopus in a salad and combine it with salad leaves, grilled aubergine, mint and tahini (the last three ingredients are such willing partners as it is).
