Aubergine and Tomato Curry

Abergine and Tomato Curry

It’s that time of the year again, where we wave goodbye to beer gardens, Aperol spritz’s, and sadly, the sun. I don’t know about you, but I always find the Summer to Winter transition quite difficult. When is it the right time to switch the central heating on? When shall I swap my summer dresses for cosy jumpers?

There’s one thing that I do love about this transition though, and it’s no surprise that it is food. One recipe that I have LOVED making recently is this hearty Aubergine and Tomato Curry. It’s warm, tasty, and will leave your stomach full.

What I love about this Curry, is that you can add as many vegetables as you wish… after all, the more the merrier!

I have also added a Vegetable Samosa with my dish, which is from a pack that I brought from Aldi. Feel free to add rice to the dish as well!

Course: Main Course
Cuisine: Indian
Servings: 2 People

Ingredients

  • Calorie Controlled Cooking Spray 4 Sprays
  • 1 Onion
  • 3 Garlic Cloves Crushed
  • 1 Tbsp Curry Powder I used Medium to bump up the spice
  • 1 Tbsp Ground Coriander
  • 1 Tbsp Ground Cumin
  • 2 Tbsp Tomato Purèe
  • 1 Large Aubergine cut into cubes
  • 2 Large Tomatoes
  • 1 Can Tinned Tomatoes
  • 1 Cube Vegetable Stock to make 500ml hot stock
  • 1 Zest Lime grated
  • 2 Tsp Lime Juice Fresh
  • Coriander Fresh, Finely Chopped, Plus extra to serve

Instructions

  • Chop the onion into small pieces. Grab a pan, add a drizzle of oil/cooking spray, and place over the cooker on medium heat. 
  • Add the onions into the pan, and cook for 8 minutes - until soft. Whilst the Onions are cooking, crush the garlic cloves.
  • Once the onions are cooked, add in the crushed garlic, curry powder, cumin, and coriander. Allow the ingredients to soak up the spices for a few minutes. This would be a good time to cut your aubergines.
  • Stir in the tomato purée, and add in the aubergine. Cook for a further 4 minutes.
  • Add in the tinned tomatoes, the chopped tomatoes, and stock. Reduce the heat, cover with a lid, and leave to simmer for 25-30 minutes.
  • Remove the lid, and cook for a further 10 minutes.
  • Grate the lime zest over the curry, and add in the fresh coriander, and lime juice. Give the curry a stir. Cook for another 3-5 minutes.
  • Serve with extra fresh coriander, and enjoy!
