Chicken and Aubergine Curry

Curry Night :-)

One of my favourite curries is this one here. If you want, you can substitute the vegetables with others or change the chicken for lamb.


  • 1 chicken breast, cut into small chunks
  • 1 green pepper, cut into dice
  • 1 medium size aubergine, also cut into dice
  • 400 ml canned tomato or passata
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1 walnut-size piece of ginger, minced
  • 1 1/2 tsp garam masala
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 1 tsp paprika powder
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 tsp cumin seeds, crushed
  • pepper, salt and chili to taste

And how to make it:

  • heat some oil in a pan
  • add garlic, ginger and onions, fry until softened, add the cumin 
  • add the chicken and brown 
  • add the other dry spices and the green pepper
  • fry 5 mins, then add the tomato 
  • add the aubergine and the bay leaf and cover
  • cook for 25-30 mins
  • when cooked, season with salt, pepper and chili to taste
  • serve with rice and/or naan
  • sprinkle with fresh coriander
That's it, quick and easy curry for saturday night!
