  • 3- pounds (1.4 kg) eggplant, (choose two or three, not one gargantuan eggplant)
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon Garlic-Infused Oil, made with vegetable oil, or purchased equivalent
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seed
  • ¼ cup (57 g) ghee
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger root
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne, or to taste
  • 6 medium fresh beefsteak tomatoes, cored, seeded and chopped; see Tips
  • 3- pounds (1.4 kg) Yukon gold potatoes, cubed
  • 1 cup (240 ml) water
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • Cilantro; optional


  1. Cube the eggplant, place in a colander in the sink, salt the eggplant and toss well to distribute salt evenly. Let sit 1 hour.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large Dutch oven over low-medium heat and add mustard seeds. Cook until the seeds begin to pop, then stir in the ghee, ginger root, coriander, cumin and cayenne and cook until ghee melts, about 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  3. Add the tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant and water. Season with salt and pepper. Give everything a good stir, then cover the pot and bring to a simmer over low-medium heat and cook for about 30 minutes or until potatoes and eggplant are tender and everything has come together. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper and add more cayenne, if desired. Stir in lime juice. Your Low FODMAP Potato Eggplant Curry is ready to serve. Garnish with chopped cilantro, if you like. The dish can be refrigerated in an airtight container for up to 4 days.



  • You can peel the fresh tomatoes if you wish. I never bother.
  • I have also made this recipe with canned, peeled tomatoes and also canned diced tomatoes and it works just fine. Just eyeball these canned products to equal the amount of fresh tomatoes called for.

If You Can Tolerate

  • Fructans: If you have passed the fructan garlic Challenge, add 1 or two minced garlic cloves to the ghee and spices and sauté.
