2 chillies, chopped

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 200℃.

  4. Roast both tins for around 45 minutes. Turn the veg halfway through cooking, and take the tins out once everything is slightly charred.

  5. Once they have cooled slightly, blend the tomatoes with the garlic, ginger and chilli until it becomes a smooth paste.

  6. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a wok and add the cumin seeds. When they start to move around, add your tomato paste.

  7. Stir in the chilli powder, ground coriander, ground cumin, turmeric and some salt.

  8. Bring to a simmer and cook for 15 minutes, until it has started to thicken.

  9. Add the aubergines, potatoes and 100ml of water, stir well, and cook until the veg has softened.
