Japanese style curry with Ground Beef and Eggplants

Published: : Last update:2014/01/14 Curry , ,

Today’s recipe is ” Ground Beef curry with eggplants“.

Recently, I found good quality beef at Arabic supermarket “Akhavan” in the west island.
They are very fresh and good price!
So, I use their ground beef very often.

I make ground beef curry.
This recipe inspired by Keema curry, but arranged Japanese style.

I also find good eggplants  at that store.
They are very good for curry!

Italian Eggplant/Small


I found this Small Italian eggplant at  the Arabic super market.

They are smaller than American eggplant, but larger than Japanese.
As you know, they are good for tomato sauce, but also curry!
