Healthy Aubergine & Chickpea Curry Recipe

This is a comforting soft curry with lots of fibre and vitamins, perfect for winter evenings. The extra veg hidden in sauce is blended up before the aubergine is added. This means my children who pick out the aubergine are still eating some vegetables in the sauce, perfect for the more fussy eaters! Can prepped at the weekend and kept in the fridge or freezer for a ready made healthy meal
