Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon tikka curry paste
  • 1 x 400g can chickpeas in water, drained

Method

  1. Warm the oil in a large, non-stick saucepan over a high heat. Then add the curry paste and mix with the oil.
  2. Add the chickpeas and stir, coating them all with curry paste. Then add the aubergine, green beans and chopped tomatoes; and mix well.
  3. Reduce the heat, cover and allow to simmer for 30 minutes, until the green beans are tender. Roughly stir to break up the aubergine – this will make the curry a thicker consistency.
  4. Serve with the rice. It can be eaten straight away or the curry can be reheated in a pan or microwave – it is best to eat rice freshly cooked.

Top tip: to prevent the aubergine from absorbing all the oil, cook it in the microwave for 2–3 minutes, until it starts to soften
