Harvest vegetable curry

Yvonne Duivenvoorden

Think of this recipe when you have a crisper full of vegetables that you want to use up: It has tons of flavour and is ready in no time.


  • 1 large onion
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 large tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp Indian curry paste
  • 2 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 1 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1 small eggplant
  • 1 small zucchini
  • 1 cup vegetable or chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup mango chutney
  • 1 small cauliflower
  • 540-ml can chickpeas


  • FINELY chop onion. Heat oil in a very large, wide saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and sauté to soften a little, from 2 to 3 min. Coarsely chop tomatoes and add to onion along with seeds and juice. Stir in curry paste, ginger and coriander. Stir frequently until saucy, 4 to 6 min.
  • SLICE unpeeled eggplant into bite-sized strips. Cut zucchini in half lengthwise, then slice into half moons. Add to tomato mixture. Stir often until softened slightly, about 5 min. Add broth and chutney. Bring to a boil. Break cauliflower into florets and mix in. Cover and simmer, stirring often, until it’s saucy and cauliflower is tender, from 20 to 30 min. Drain, then rinse chickpeas and add for the last minute of cooking. Will keep well, covered and refrigerated, up to 3 days. Or freeze up to 2 months. Good over basmati rice.

For meat lovers

Boost protein by adding cubes of cooked chicken, lamb or beef in place of chickpeas.
