  • Yield: Serves 2-3 1x


  • 150g yellow split peas, rinsed
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 2 large cloves of garlic, finely minced
  • 200g passata
  • 1 vegetable stock cube
  • 1 tbsp garam masala
  • 1 tbsp cumin
  • 1/2 tbsp ground coriander
  • 2 chili peppers, chopped
  • 1 medium aubergine, sliced and diced
  • 4 tbsp coconut milk
  • 4 tbsp freshly chopped coriander


Add rinsed yellow split peas, garlic, onions, passata, vegetable stock cube, chilis, all of the spices, and around 300 ml of water into a medium saucepan over and stir thoroughly.

Bring the mixture to boil then turn the heat down to a simmer, and cook for around 30 minutes or until the peas are soft. Stir the curry intermittently and add more water if necessary.

Just before the peas are cooked, add the aubergines and cook (still on a simmer) until the aubergines are soft. Once the aubergines are cooked, take the pan off the heat and stir in the coconut milk.

Serve the curry with rice or any other grain or bread of your choice. Garnish with freshly chopped coriander and enjoy!
