Vegan Aubergine Curry

This recipe is so quick, easy and tasty! It’s done from start to finish in 30mins! Well balanced with carbs, veg and flavour… not to mention that it’s vegan too!

My amazingly colourful Indian spices


  • Sunflower oil
  • Mustard seeds
  • Compounded asafoetida powder (if you can’t find this in the shop don’t worry it’s optional) try the ethic aisle or an Indian grocery store it’s sometimes called ‘hing’
  • Large firm aubergine
  • 2-3 medium/large white potatoes
  • Fresh Masala – equal parts fresh ginger, fresh garlic and green finger chillies. Cut small and blend together with a tiny drop of sunflower oil or use a pestle and mortar. You can also use garlic and ginger paste instead of fresh garlic and ginger.
  • Fine Salt
  • Turmeric powder
  • Red chili powder
  • Combined ground cumin and ground coriander powder.
  • Frozen peas or any veg of your choice (fresh or frozen)
  • Salad tomatoes
  • Fresh coriander to garnish. (Optional)


  • Add sunflower oil to a medium/large pan with a lid.
  • Once heated slightly, add mustard seeds. Approx 1 teaspoon maybe more.
  • When the seeds start to spit add a sprinkle of compounded asafoetida powder (this is optional, it’s no big deal if you can’t get your hands on it)
  • Straight away add diced aubergine. Cut to desired size but try keep them even-ish so they cook evenly
  • Place lid on top and leave to cook on a low/medium heat stirring occasionally
  • Once they start to cook add pealed and diced white potatoes
  • Add fresh Malasa (equal parts fresh ginger, fresh garlic and green ginger chillies)
  • Add a sprinkle spoon of salt
  • Half to 1 teaspoon of tumeric powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of red chilli powder
  • 1 table spoon of combined ground cumin and ground coriander. (equal parts combined)
  • Mix together and put lid on to cook for 10 mins
  • Add frozen peas (or veg of choice) and quartered tomatoes. At this stage it should look like the image below. Add a splash of water.


  • Cooked for further 10 or so minutes until stodgy consistency and potatoes and peas are cooked.

Garnish with fresh coriander (optional)

…And that’s it! It’s really that easy!
