The original flavour bomb is back! Now that aubergines are coming into season again, we're putting this much-beloved Indian curry back on the menu.
This favourite dish is bursting with deeply roasted aubergine and cauliflower, a rich, creamy tomato and coconut milk sauce, tonnes of deeply aromatic spices, and has just a tad of warmth going through it. It’s a total crowd pleaser, and we're yet to come across anyone who doesn’t love our curry! (P.S.: it's nice and mild too, so a great option for both adults and children!)
- Vegan & gluten free
- For a complete meal, serve with your own side dish, like basmati rice or flatbreads (like naan, roti, chapatti, or paratha)

- Mango chutney is an ace accompaniment to this dish – so good!

- Stir in a big handful of fresh spinach leaves
- Scrunch some papadums over the top for an awesome textural crunch (if you can find some in the Belgian shops!)

*Bonus* The background story:
When you think of food that’s typical of London (and by extension: the UK), chances are that “Indian” and “curry” feature high in your list of dishes and cuisines.
Back in 2011, when I moved across the Pond from Belgium, I was a total stranger to Indian food. Its spice levels and the dishes’ impossible to decipher names made London’s many Indian restaurants just a bit too intimidating for me then.
Until, in 2012, a Boy came along. He was Belgian too, but he’d travelled to India and picked up a great love for its – very vegetable-led – food while there.
The Boy stayed, and his fondness for the cuisine and its incredible layers of flavour became mine as well.
I’m by no means an expert, so please don’t ask me for an authentic Indian name for this dish. I would never dare to call this recipe “authentic”, either.
What I do know, however, is that it’s bursting with deeply roasted veg, a rich, creamy tomato and coconut milk sauce, tonnes of deeply aromatic spices, and just a tad of warmth going through it.
It’s a total crowd pleaser, and I’m yet to come across anyone who doesn’t love this dish.
