2 Tbs. vegetable oil
6 jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/2 cup cubed eggplant
1/2 cup bell pepper, coarsely chopped
1/4 cup sliced bamboo shoots

Directions:
Heat the vegetable oil in a wok until almost smoking. Add the shrimp, eggplant, bell pepper, and bamboo shoots and stir-fry until the shrimp are pink--about 15-20 seconds. With a slotted spoon, remove all the ingredients and keep warm. Pour off the oil but leave the residue. Add all the other ingredients and bring to a boil. Allow to reduce to half its original volume, or until sauce has a pleasing thickness. Return the shrimp, etc. to the wok and toss with the sauce until combined. Serve immediately.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
One of the most distinctively good dishes in Thai places is green curry, the spiciest of their curries. This one is made with eggplant and shrimp; it can also be made with chicken. It's fiery with pepper, mellow with coconut milk. Some of the ingredients you will find at an Oriental grocery and the technique is the same as is used in Chinese cooking, with rapid cooking in a wok.
