Vegan Veg Curry

Delicious healthy curry for any weather. And even better to make ahead of time, freeze and have it ready to reheat for busy week-night dinners.

* “To degorge vegetables, cut the vegetable into skinned slices or cubes, then sprinkle salt directly onto the vegetable or soak in heavily salted water, and allow them to “sweat” for at least 30 minutes. The eggplant will give off a brownish liquid. Before cooking rinse the vegetables thoroughly” – http://www.welike2cook.com/2012/06/tow-degorging.html
