Method
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Cut the aubergine into rounds and lay flat on a baking sheet. Sprinkle generously with salt and set aside for 10 minutes. On another baking sheet, lay out the tomatoes (cut-side up) and garlic cloves (in their skins) and cover generously with oil (olive or vegetable oil is fine) and a sprinkling of salt. Once the salt has worked its magic and softened the aubergines slightly, add them to the tomatoes. You may need to spread the vegetables over 2 trays. Place the tray(s) in the oven for 45—60 minutes, until the vegetables are soft and caramelised. 
  2. Take a large frying pan and add the oil. When the oil is hot add the cumin seeds, coriander stalks and bay leaf. Add the onion with a large pinch of salt and cook slowly until caramelised. When the onions are half-cooked add the ginger, coriander powder, red chilli flakes and tomato paste, adding a splash of water if needed. Cook out for 5 more minutes.
  3. Add the roasted vegetables. Squish the tomatoes and garlic with the back of your spatula so they dissolve into the sauce. Add the turmeric and a cup of water and simmer for 5 minutes. Taste for seasoning. Finish by stirring through the coriander leaves and garam masala.
