Green curry chicken with pea eggplants

I made Thai Green Chicken Curry with chicken, green curry paste, pea eggplant, bamboo shoots, coconut milk, palm sugar, fish sauce and thai basil.
I harvested the Thai pea egglplants (Puangyok) off the plant before cooking up the curry. The pea eggplants are tiny round green eggplants that grow in clusters similar to cherry tomatoes. They are harvested when they are light green in color.
These eggplants become bitter and tough when they are over ripe. If you choose to grow a plant, note that they grow best in the ground and also beware of thorns thes plants have nasty ones.
