Instructions

Roast the Aubergine
1
  • Preheat your oven to 220°C/200°C fan/gas mark 7.
  • Trim and chop the aubergine into 2cm pieces. Pop the pieces onto a large (lined) baking tray.
  • Drizzle with oil, season with salt and pepper and sprinkle over the North Indian style spice mix. Toss to coat, then arrange in a single layer.
  • Roast the aubergine until golden brown and soft, 25-30 mins. Turn halfway through.
Cook the Rice
2
  • While the aubergine cooks, pour 300ml cold salted water (double for 4p) into a medium pot with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Stir in the rice and bring to the boil.
  • Once boiling, lower the heat to medium, cover and cook for 10 mins.
  • Remove from the heat (still covered) and leave aside for 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
Fry the Onion
3
  • Meanwhile, halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces.
  • Heat a drizzle of oil in a large pot over medium-high heat.
  • Once hot, add the onion and cook, stirring, until softened and turning brown, 5-6 mins.
  • Drain and rinse the lentils in a sieve.
Start the Sauce
4
  • Add the korma curry paste to the pot and cook, stirring, for 1 min.
  • Add 350ml water, ½ tsp sugar (double both for 4p)vegetable stock powder, lentils and passata.
  • Bring to the boil. Once boiling, lower to medium heat and cook until the sauce has reduced, 10-15 mins.
  • Stir regularly to prevent sticking. Add a splash of water if it's starting to get too thick.
  • Season to taste with salt, pepper and sugar.
Finish the Dahl
5
  • Once the sauce has reduced, add the spinach a handful at a time, stirring until wilted and piping hot, 2-3 mins.
  • Roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all).
  • Stir through half the roasted aubergine, half the yoghurt and half the coriander.
  • Taste and season with salt and pepper.
Dish Up
6
  • Once everything is ready, divide the rice between bowls.
  • Top with the dahl, the remaining roasted aubergine and remaining yoghurt.
  • Scatter over the remaining coriander.
