Stuffed eggplant with peanuts, dried shrimps and spices

My mother cooks this eggplant curry at home quite often. I like the rich taste of this eggplant stuffed with peanuts, dried shrimps and spices. Recently, i tried out this simple recipe in my own kitchen.
Not bad :)

I have a feeling that I will be making this eggplant curry fairly often in the future.

For my this recipe, let me just eye balls things as i never like to measure.
I guess it runs in the genes.
Whenever i asked my mum how to prepare certain dishes, she would just say, " Well, you need to add this and that ingredient.....".
That's why, i often ended up cooking many dishes with no proper recipes.
To be honest, i prefer it this way too :)
Why not?
In fact, it makes my time in the kitchen more challenging and exciting.


Pounded dried shrimps

Pounded peanuts

Mixture of chilli powder, red onions and garlic
