Brinjal & Anchovies Stir-Fried

It's a spicy (yes, as usual) side dish for white rice. The recipe is my mum's but I sort of modified it by using the ingredients I had at home.  Hope you will try and enjoy it too, just like we did.

2 (230g)  round/Indian brinjals - sliced
2 tbsp anchovies/ikan bilis -soaked for 10 mins and cut/snip into smaller pieces
(Note; can use dried prawns too. Omit for a vegetarian version)
1/2 tbsp dried chilli paste
1/2 inch ginger - sliced into thin stripes
5 shallots - sliced thinly
1 tsp turmeric/kunyit powder
2 sprigs curry leaves
1 tbsp lime juice
3 tbsp oil
Salt for taste

When oil is heated, fry anchovies until crispy, remove and keep aside.
In the same oil. saute shallots and ginger.
Add chilli paste, stir and cook till aromatic and oil splits.
Put in sliced brinjals, turmeric powder and curry leaves.
Season with salt.
Pour 3 tbsp of water, stir and cook to soften brinjal.
(Note; more water if you like more gravy/sauce)
Add fried anchovies and lime juice.
Give a good stir before removing from heat.
