You’ll need

2, Aubergine

300g, Chopped Tinned tomato

  2. Add oil in the pot once hot (hold your hand fairly closely over the pot to see if you can feel the heat), throw in the onions along with the garlic. Sweat them down (cook them without colour) then add in the dry ingredients along with the aubergines. Stir occasionally for around 5 min or so till you can see most of the aubergines are getting soft.
  3. Add in the chopped tomatoes as well as the veg stock. Bring up to a boil, add in the butter beans, coconut milk, turmeric, salt and pepper. Stir, leave it to boil for 2min, then leave to simmer for 20min.
