  • Shazans -4 Chicken breast diced fillets
  • 1 -Aubergine
  • 1 Onion, 2 cloves garlic –
  • Turmeric, cumin, coriander, paprika, garam masala and chili powder – Spices buy as a pre-mix
  • Tomato passata – Or strained tomatoes.


Preheat the oven to 190 C / 175 C fan oven / 375 F.

Dice the aubergine in bite sized pieces. Add them to a baking tray, and cover with 1 teaspoon oil and a pinch of salt. Stir to coat the aubergine evenly. Roast the aubergine in the oven until soft, about 15 minutes.

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large pot. Finely dice garlic and onion, and add them to the pot. Saute until soft and translucent, about 3-5 minutes.

Add diced chicken breast to the pot, and cook while stirring occasionally until the chicken pieces are mostly white on all sides. Then, add all the spices, and leave this to saute for 2 minutes while stirring.

Add the tomato passata and roasted aubergine to the curry, give it a stir and leave it to cook on medium heat covered with a lid for about 10 minutes to allow all the flavours to develop. Make sure that the chicken has fully cooked through before removing it from the heat.

Season chicken and aubergine curry with salt and pepper to taste, and add more chilli powder if you prefer the curry to be spicy.

Serve with basmati rice and Nan bread
