Watch the recipe being made here:
- Cube your aubergines. Add them to a pan with no oil and cook on a medium heat until they are nice and browned and shrivelled. Remove them from the pan and set aside.
- Add a splash of oil to the pan and then throw in the chopped red pepper, chopped onion, 2 finely sliced cloves of garlic and the grated ginger. Add the turmeric and the garam masala. Mix everything together.
- At this point, get your rice on (cook following pack instructions).
- Once the onions are softened, add the peanut butter.
- Mix it in, and then pour in the coconut milk and the chickpeas (with the chickpea water). Mix everything together, and then add the aubergines and the spinach.
- Bubble the curry down until it is nice and thick (should be 5-6 minutes on a medium heat).
- When the curry is ready, add a handful of chopped coriander and squeeze in the juice of the lime. Season with salt and pepper, then remove from the heat.
