Sounds interesting. I like eggplant and coconut but never would think to put it together. Sounds like Thai or Vietnamese cooking.

I love using coconut milk in cooking.  I like how the dish turns creamy and milky.  I often cook squash and coconut milk together.  When the squash softens, it blends and makes the sauce creamy.

Oooh that sounds like it has potential. I don't often use coconut milk, but I like it and really should go and get some.
