Gently fry the onion, chilli and garlic until the onion is translucent.

Stir in the turmeric and curry powder and cook for a minute. Now throw in the chopped aubergine and the whole tomatoes and cook until both are soft, about ten mins.

Pour in the coconut milk and passata and add the tomato purée and some salt (to taste, I used about a heaped teaspoon).

Simmer for 5-10 minutes then add the spinach just before serving


Nutrition Info


The beautiful purple skin of the aubergine is where so many of its phytonutrients lie. They’re in the skin to give the plant protection from the elements and pests and when you eat them they help to do the same for you.

Aubergines are rich in anthocyanin and a phytonutrient called Nasunin, which is a potent antioxidant to help protect cell membranes from damage.
