Step 1

Heat 4 tablespoons of oil in a large pot over high heat. Saute eggplant with salt until soft and golden. Drain on paper towels.

Add remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to pot and reduce heat to medium. Saute onion, garlic and ginger until soft. Add curry powder, other seasoning and tomato paste and cook, stirring constantly, about 1 minute.

Add water and sugar, bring to a boil and cook 1 minute longer at high heat. Stir in spinach and cook until wilted. Add eggplant and tomato, reduce heat and cook just to blend flavors, about 4 minutes. Adjust seasonings and serve hot over rice.
