Thai vegetables: Ma Keu-uh, small eggplants

This Thai food is a vegetable and is a small eggplant that is called “ma keu-uh” it has a slightly bitter taste and is used in soups, som tam (spicy papaya salad), and served as a side vegetable with green beans and cucumbers usually at lunch or with any meal. It’s also used in green curry (Gang Keow Wahn). It is mostly used in the northeast – well, extensively used in the northeast. The Isaan people really enjoy them. My landlord used to eat these raw from his garden.
