Eggplant Stir Fried With Curry Leaves & Saffron

As mentioned in Malaysian Style Fried Mee Hoon and Fish Soup With Okra, an ordeal of disaster I went through because of the missing domain. And now that all's well that ended well, yippie yeh yeh back to blogging. Thanks to Google and for bloggers, here's the pointers -
  • Log into your Google apps ever now and then.
  • Set your account at auto renewal if you wish to continue with your current domain.
  • Do not believe everything you read when searching for information because may not be applicable. 
  • Expired domain can be renewed and will not be auctioned.
  • Keep sending reminders to Google apps team until you receive a reply. 
  • Due to the time difference between your location and Google, be prepared to burn the midnight oil.
  • Make sure you update your billing information. 
As grateful as I am, its a showcase of an eggplant dish made with saffron (solo trip to Bangkok), spices, curry leaves and curry powder. Whether its eggplant, brinjal or aubergine, you can also replace the expensive saffron with turmeric powder.  
2 eggplant (about 400g) - cut into bite sizes.
1 red chilli - chopped/sliced thinly
1 green chilli - chopped/sliced thinly
4 shallots - chopped/sliced thinly
1/2 inch ginger - chopped/sliced thinly
1/2 tsp saffron strands/turmeric powder
3-4 sprigs curry leaves
1 tsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp oil
Lime juice (optional)
Salt for taste

Heat oil and sauté chillies, shallots, ginger and cumin seeds. 
Add eggplant and saffron/turmeric.
Stir and sprinkle some water - to cook and soften eggplant. 
Add curry leaves and lime juice and season with salt. 
Stir a couple of times and remove from heat.
