Aubergine, chickpea and tamarind stew

June 26, 2011

A few years back I tried to introduce more veggie meals as a cost-cutting measure, and I had to declare bacon a vegetable fairly early on in the process. Massive fail. So one of the great things about this challenge has been the number of tasty genuinely vegetarian meals that I’ve learned to cook. A colleague’s husband and talented cook, F, sent me a fabulous list of his favourites, and this is the first we’ve tried. It’s from the Guardian Life & Style pages, and it’s delicious.

Beautiful colours and a stunning blend of flavour

The stew has a real breadth of flavour which is pretty intense, so the rice and cucumber provide the needed counterbalance. The tamarind and chickpea dish we had on Thursday was pretty disappointing, and this demonstrated everything it could have been. Scrumptious.
