  2. To fry the eggplant, heat oil in a medium non-stick fry pan to a medium high heat.  Fry in batches, turning once or twice until golden brown and crunchy. Drain well over paper towel or a drying rack on a tray.
  3. To prepare the curry, preheat a medium non-stick fry pan to a medium high-heat. Stir-fry the curry paste until fragrant, deglaze, break up and thoroughly stir through water until a sauce is forming.  Add all vegetables and reduce heat to a low simmer and cook until vegetables have softened through.
  4. To serve, place a bed of rice followed by curry then topped with eggplant katsu, sauce and optional toppings.
