1. Preheat oven to medium hot then wrap aubergines in foil and bake in oven until soft. Remove, unwrap and allow to cool. (If you want this can be done the day before).

2. Meanwhile... heat the oil in a heavy based saucepan and fry the mustard seeds until they begin to splutter. Add the salad onion,s mushrooms, garlic and chilli and fry for 5 mins. Stir in the chilli powder cumin, ground coriander, turmeric and salt and fry for 3-4 mins. Add the tomatoes and simmer for 5 mins.

3. Cut each of the aubergines in half and soop out the soft flesh in to a mixing bowl. Mash the flesh roughly with a fork. Then add the flesh to the saucepan, bring to the boil and simmer gently for 5 mins until the sauce thickens.
