NOM - Eggplant Curry Rice

Easy and delicious Japanese dish

close up of homemade eggplant curry and rice

I very rarely make anything from YouTube videos but this looked great, and I had most of the ingredients, so why not?

It was so good, both Josh and I had it two days in a row. You can watch (and follow) RunnyRunny999's video on YouTube.

As with most curry its flavour only improved overnight in the fridge.
