Method

  1. Heat oil in a heavy-based saucepan, add the onions and garlic and cook until they begin to colour. Add the chillies, coriander and cumin seeds. When the seeds give off a nutty aroma, toss in the whole aubergines, coating them in the onion and spices.
  2. Tip in tomatoes and sugar, cover and gently cook for 40 mins, until aubergines are tender.
  3. Season sauce and toss in half the mint and coriander. Cover and simmer for 2 mins. Sprinkle over remaining herbs and serve with couscous and yogurt.

This probably tastes really nice, it just doesn't look so nice visually.

I used 2 regular aubergines cubed. Add a teaspoon of sugar to balance the tomatoes. Makes a lovely side dish for fish or chicken or add chickpeas for a more substantial vegetarian main.
