  • 2 tbsp Vegetable oil
  • 1 large aubergine, diced into small pieces
  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 thumb-sized piece ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli, deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • 150ml vegetable stock
  • 250ml coconut milk
  • 2 x 150g packs extra-large raw prawns
  • 2 limes
  • 100g baby spinach
  • 1 Naan bread, to serve


  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large sauté pan and add the diced aubergine. Season and fry for 5 minutes, stirring continuously, until just softened and beginning to turn golden. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside.

  2. Add the remaining oil and the onion, season and fry over a medium heat for 3 minutes. Add the garlic, ginger and chilli and fry for 2 minutes. Stir in the spices and fry for a further 1-2 minutes until fragrant.

  3. Pour in the stock and coconut milk, bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 2 minutes. Add the aubergine and prawns and cook for 2 minutes, or until the prawns are completely cooked through. Stir in the juice of ½ lime and the spinach, stirring to wilt.

  4. Serve immediately with warm naan bread to mop up the juices and wedges of lime to squeeze over.
