Cook time: 25 minutes

Servings: 6 people


Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a large heavy-based frying pan and cook the mushrooms and onion over a moderately high heat for 4-5 minutes until softened and golden.

Remove from the pan using a slotted spoon and place onto a plate to keep warm.

Heat the remaining oil in the pan and cook the potatoes and aubergine over a moderately high heat for 4-5 minutes until the aubergine is golden and soft and the potatoes are beginning to soften and turn golden.

Add the curry paste and stir well to coat, then add the stock and bring to the boil.

Cover and simmer for 5 minutes. Return the mushrooms and onion to the pan, then add the coconut milk and gently simmer for 10 minutes before stirring in the spinach leaves and coriander.

Cook again for 2-3 minutes until the spinach has wilted.

Serve ladled over hot wholegrain basmati rice, with garlic and coriander naan breads and natural yogurt, if you like.
