The potatoes from the garden ended up in my all-time favorite curry: Vankaya-Bangaladumpa kura. I would have used the tiny Indian eggplants if I had them on hand, but since I didn’t I used the American globe variety. Only problem with these gigantic eggplants is the thick skin (and the lack of taste), so I peeled the skin off and I think it makes the eggplant more palatable.

This dish does not have many ingredients and is quick & easy to put together. The garden fresh potatoes had light papery skin and cooked up in no time.
