Serves 4

  1. Heat oil in a frying pan, crisp up your aubergine and then set aside on kitchen paper, then crisp your cauliflower
  2. Sautee your onions, chilli, ginger, garlic, curry leaves, garam masala, turmeric and coriander stalks in a pot on a medium heat, we like using coconut oil but groundnut oil is good too. Cook until the onions are soft then add your chopped tomatoes, lime juice, stock, squirt maple syrup, coconut milk and sweet potatoes
  3. Cook for 15 mins then add your aubergine, cauliflower and okra and cook for a further 10 mins, making sure the potato is cooked through
  4. Served with toasted flaked almonds and a delicious limey yoghurt
