Aubergine Curry

I made this simple but ever so tasty and nutritious curry that will see you through the dark days and cold nights, for the Laura Ashley blog. Usually made with Coconut Milk, swap it out with a plant based alternative; I used Innocent’s Coconut drink. Yes it will mean the sauce is a little thinner after reduction but you get that same, creamy indulgent tasting coconut sauce but with far less calories and fat. Perfect for January/February intentions without feeling like you are missing out.

You can find the recipe over on the Laura Ashley blog or below

In a blender add the chilli, garlic cloves, lemon grass and ginger, pulse to make a paste, set aside  2. Rub the aubergine with the turmeric, heat half the oil in a frying pan, then add the aubergine, brown both sides then set aside.  3.
