Curried eggplant & potato pie


  • Preheat oven to 170°C fan forced (190°C normal).
  • Cook the potatoes in plenty of boiling water until tender. Then drain well and roughly mash with a little oil and seasonings. Set aside in a warm place.
  • While the potatoes are cooking, heat a little oil in a large heavy-bottomed pot and gently saute the onion and garlic until softish. Add the curry paste and stir to toast. Then add the eggplant, stir to coat well and add the tomatoes with 1 cup stock and seasonings. Mix well and gently cook for about 15 mins until tender, stirring and adding more stock as needed.
  • Then stir in the chickpeas and transfer the mixture to a large oven dish. Top with the mashed potato and cheese, and cook in the oven for 25-30 mins until golden brown and bubbling. 
  • Serve as is or with a simple green salad on the side.
