Hi, Here are the directions for you. 1. In a deep wok or frying pan, heat 3 inches of oil and fry the eggplant pieces. 2. When the eggplant is golden and crispy, remove with a slotted spoon into a colander and drain the excess oil. Keep aside. 3. In a skillet, spoon 2 tablespoons of the oil in which the eggplant was fried. 4. Add whole red chilies and the mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds splutter, add the cumin seeds and the chopped onions, curry leaves, chopped green chilies and a little bit of ginger garlic paste. 5. Saute for a few minutes then add the turmeric. Saute the onions till they are soft and transparent. 6. Stir in the coriander and chili powder then add the tomatoes to the skillet. 7. Reduce the heat, cover the pan and allow the mixture to simmer till reduced to a sauce. Add a little water if it becomes dry and sticks to the pan. 8. In the meantime, in a small pan, roast the peanuts until crisp and brown. You can add a little oil to speed up the process. 9. Add the sesame to the peanuts and toast them until they release the fragrance. When done allow to cool. 10. Add the fried eggplant pieces to the gravy and mix well. Simmer covered for another 3-4 minutes. 11. Pound the peanuts and sesame seeds into powder and stir into the gravy. 12. Cook for a few minutes then turn off the heat and let sit covered. 13. Serve garnished with fresh coriander.

Just made and ate this curry. It was just heavenly. tho i have to confess that i was rather heavy handed with the sesemee and roast peanuts and probably used almost twice the amount specified. I am or ....perhaps was.... a die hard meat eater.. however this dish did not leave me wanting for flavour or texture variety and was very satisfying. Cant wait to make it for my boyfreind :)
