In a medium saucepan, bring the water (for the rice) to the boil. Scrunch the kaffir lime leaves in your hands, then add to the water along with the jasmine rice. Stir, cover with a lid and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 12 minutes, then remove the pan from the heat and set aside, covered, until the rice is tender and all the water is absorbed, 10-15 minutes. TIP: The rice will finish cooking in its own steam so don't peek!
While the rice is cooking, cut the eggplant into 1cm cubes. Cut the broccoli into small florets and roughly chop the stalk. TIP: Cut the veggies to the correct size so they cook in the allocated time.
SPICY! The curry paste is spicy, use 1/2 if you're sensitive to heat. In a large frying pan, heat a good drizzle of olive oil over a high heat. When the oil is hot, add the eggplant and pumpkin and cook until softened, 5 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium and add the Thai green curry paste (see ingredients list) and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute.
Add the coconut cream and water (for the curry) and bring to a simmer. Cover the pan with a lid or foil and simmer until the pumpkin is soft, 10-12 minutes. In the last 5 minutes of cook time, add the broccoli and cook until tender.
While the curry is simmering, slice the lime (see ingredients list) into wedges. Stir the soy sauce and a squeeze of lime juice through the curry.
Remove the kaffir lime leaves from the rice, then divide the infused rice and eggplant and pumpkin curry between bowls. Serve with the remaining lime wedges and sprinkle with the crispy shallots.
