So rare are these tiny eggplants that we can only get a few dozen cases per year, most of the time we're sold out.

Thai Green Curry with Chicken & Eggplant, 'Gaeng Khiao Wan Gai'
This recipe highlights the delicious Thai mini eggplant and it's a common recipe throughout all provinces of Thailand. It's easy to prepare, and almost always made with chicken & served with jasmine rice. Translation: Gaeng = spicy soup, khiao = green, wan = sweet, gai = chicken. We like to make it with lots of chicken so it's a hearty meal.
Also note we also have a similar green chicken curry recipe here.
Thai Red Curry Chicken, 'Gaeng Phed Gai'
The Thai name of this dish literally means "hot chicken curry". It takes no more than 10 minutes to make this dish but it's full of elegant flavors and aroma.
Roasted Duck & Red Curry, 'Kaeng Phed Ped Yang'
In Thailand this recipe is often served at special events, such as a wedding or formal ceremony. Try to use rambutan as per the recipe, it really goes well with the flavors. We got a roasted duck locally for $17, and had it cut into pieces with a cleaver. The duck was so big that we only used half of it for this recipe.
