30-MINUTE INDIAN EGGPLANT CURRY (BRINJAL CURRY)
This easy eggplant curry recipe is healthy, flavour packed and a terrific Indian curry dish - with all of the cooking taking place in one pot. Also known as brinjal curry, cubes of eggplant (aubergine, for some!) and potatoes simmer in a thick and spicy tomato sauce to create this nourishing vegan curry. Recipe is gluten free, and it isn't drenched in oil either

- Heat a large pan and add oil, mustard seeds, garlic, cinnamon sticks and bay leaf. Temper the whole spices along with the garlic on low heat until the spices and garlic release their aroma
- Next, add the tomato passata, curry powder, turmeric coriander powder, salt and green chillies to the pan. To prevent spluttering, keep the heat low at this stage. Simmer on low heat for 1-2 minutes
- When the oil begins to separate and appear on the surface of the sauce, add eggplant, potatoes and water. Stir well to coat all the pieces, and simmer on low-medium heat for 15 minutes (covered) or until the eggplant and potatoes are cooked through. Don't forget to check in halfway to be sure the curry isn't sticking to the bottom of your pan. Stir gently so as not to break up the eggplant potato pieces
- Garnish with lemon juice, garam masala and fresh cilantro

BRINJAL (EGGPLANT) CURRY
This aubergine bhaji recipe has won rave reviews from my South Indian in-laws, who have very discerning palates when it comes to authentic currys. This dish can either be used as a side dish, or as a vegetarian main dish. It's easy, delicious and a great way to introduce different veggies to your kids.

- Cut the eggplants into 1-inch pieces- preferably keeping at least one side of each piece with the skin on.
- Put the eggplant pieces into a strainer and sprinkle liberally with salt. Place a small plate on top of the eggplant, and a weight on top of the plate- this process draws the excess water out of the eggplant, and it won't be overly salty. Leave for at least 30 minutes.
- Heat 1 1/2 tbsp oil in a heavy pan. When hot, add mustard seeds- they will start to pop in a few seconds. When they begin to pop, add the sliced onions, garlic and ginger. Turn the heat to medium, and cook until mixture is nicely browned.
- Add cayenne pepper, tumeric, garam masala and cumin to the onion mixture. Cook spices for a few minutes, then add water and tomato paste, and reduce heat to low. Let the sauce cook gently, but don't allow it to become dry.
- In a large skillet, heat 1 1/2 tbsp oil over moderate heat. Add eggplant pieces to the pan, and arrange in a single layer. Saute until all sides are brown and crisp.
- Once all eggplant pieces are browned, incorporate them into the sauce pan, making sure to cover all pieces with the sauce. Add lemon juice and salt.
- Cook gently until eggplant is cooked through (about 15-20 minutes). Stir occasionally (and very gently) and serve.
EGGPLANT CURRY - SOUTH INDIAN BRINJAL CURRY
Recipe video above. This curry is not for the faint hearted! Eggplant (Brinjal) stars in this strong flavoured curry, roasted rather than fried for a healthier yet equally delicious (high temp does the trick here), then simmered in an intensely spiced South Indian curry sauce so it sucks up the flavour and partially collapses to create a big pot of juicy (delicious) mush. Incidentally vegan (as much of South Indian food is). See recipe notes for subs for the harder to find spices. And when you've made this, use the same spices to make this Vegetable Samosa Pie!Spiciness: Pretty mild. Spiciness only comes from the chilli powder so if you're concerned, skip or reduce it!

- Preheat oven to 240°C / 450°F (220°C fan). Line tray with parchment/baking paper.
- Cut eggplant into 2cm / 4/5" slices, then cut into 2cm / 4/5" batons.
- Place in large bowl, toss with oil, salt and pepper.
- Spread on tray, roast 20 minutes. Turn, roast for a further 10 minutes - edges should be caramelised, soft inside, but they're not shrivelled up and dismal. Use per recipe.
- Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add mustard seeds, let them sizzle for 15 seconds.
- Add curry leaves, stir, leave to sizzle for 15 seconds - seeds might pop, Indian cooking is very dramatic!
- Add onions, cook 5 minutes until golden brown.
- Add tomato, cook for 1 minute, stirring.
- Add garlic and ginger, cook 2 minutes.
- Add Curry Spices and salt, and cook for another 3 minutes - it will be a thick paste and might stick to the bottom of the pot, don't let it burn (if it starts to, remove from stove and quickly add splash of water to loosen).
- Stir in water, and then add the eggplant.
- Gently stir, partially cover, reduce heat to low and simmer 30 minutes. Stir carefully once or twice (so the eggplants don't break up completely), add more water if it dries out.
- Stir in coconut milk, taste then add more salt if needed.
- Your result should be a very thick, juicy, strongly flavoured curry with eggplant partially intact but half collapsed.
- Serve with basmati rice and a dollop of yogurt and fresh coriander leaves, if you want.

SOUTH INDIAN EGGPLANT (AUBERGINE) CURRY
This is an adopted recipe that I haven't yet tried. The original chef comments: "My good friend's Indian mother-in-law taught me how to cook this. Auntie (I call her Auntie) is from Hyderabad, is one of the best cooks I know and is very patient! There are a few steps to this recipe and you need some special ingredients, but it is really good, authentic South Indian cuisine. I'm posting some photographs with this recipe so you can see what these ingredients look like. They can all be found at an Indian grocery. Everything is listed in the order in which you will use it. Be brave; if you are patient, willing to take your time and have everything ready before hand, you will be rewarded with a delicious result. (Prep time is approximate and could be a little longer)."
