    Prep Time: 10 minutes Cook Time: 30 minutes


    • ALCO Kashmiri Chili Powder - 1 tsp
    • ALCO Coriander Powder  - 2 tsp
    • 1 cup coconut milk
    • Salt  - 1 tsp
    • Garlic (minced) - 2
    • Onion (finely chopped) - 1 large
    • Ghee (clarified butter) - 1/2 cup
    • Eggplants (halved lengthwise) - 4 small
    • Vegetable oil for frying - 1 quart


    • Firstly, scoop the inside out of the eggplant halves, leaving 1/4 inch of flesh attached to the skin. Roughly chop the removed eggplant, and set the shells aside.
    • Then heat the ghee in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir the onion and garlic until the onion has softened and turned translucent for about 5 minutes.
    • Then stir in the ALCO Coriander Powder, ALCO Curry Powder, vindaloo powder, ALCO Kashmiri Chili Powder, and salt; continue cooking 2 to 3 minutes until the spices are very fragrant.
    • Then stir in the chopped eggplant flesh, and cook until very soft, mashing as you go. Pour in a little water if needed to keep the eggplant from burning. Keep the mashed eggplant hot over low heat.
    • Then heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan.
      Deep fry the eggplant halves in the hot oil until crisp, about 5 minutes. Drain upside-down on a paper towel-lined plate. Once drained, spoon in the reserved filling, and serve hot.
