Wow great challenge!  I see these at the farmers market and don't buy them because I don't have a ton of eggplant ideas.    Can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.
Thai green eggplant. These aren't bitter at all. Also, they are not tomatillos, whole foods cashier guy!

I haven't seen a curry on here yet, but I also don't know if I can make a curry look good in a photograph. Anyway I need a few ingredients I'll pick up in chinatown tomorrow.

Yes, nice and cheap and big.  Hasn't cracked yet (1.5 years).  I wipe it with beeswax/mineral oil whenever it looks dry
Green curry! Brown Rice!

Sear the eggplant.

Toast the curry paste: hot green chiles, garlic, shallot, ginger, galangal, cumin, coriander, fenugreek

Add coconut milk and the eggplant back in to simmer 20 ish minutes. salt and brown sugar to taste.
