Serves 4

  • 2 tbsp Tamarind Tree Gourmet Sauces Indian Railway Rogan Josh
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 30ml oil
  • 2 medium onions, diced
  • 2 Desiree potatoes, diced
  • 1 red capsicum, diced
  • 1 green capsicum, diced
  • 2 deseeded tomatoes, diced
  • 1 roasted eggplant, diced
  • Coriander for garnish



  1. Preheat the oven to 240°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper.
  2. Cut the eggplant into cubes and toss them with 15mL of oil, salt to taste, and 1/2 tbsp of Tamarind Tree Gourmet Sauces Indian Railway Rogan Josh.
  3. Spread the eggplant cubes in a single layer on the prepared baking tray and roast them in the preheated oven for 15-20 minutes, or until the edges are caramelised.
  4. Remove from oven and set aside.


  1. In a separate pan, heat the remaining oil and sauté the diced onion and potato. Season with salt and add 1/2 cup of water. Cover the pan with a lid and cook on a low flame until the potatoes are half cooked.
  2. Add the diced capsicum to the pan and continue to sauté. Add 1 1/2 tbsp of Tamarind Tree Indian Railway Rogan Josh and 2 tbsp of tomato paste, along with 1/2 cup of water. Continue to cook until the potatoes are fully cooked and the capsicum is soft.
  3. Add the roasted eggplant cubes and diced tomato to the pan. Mix lightly to coat the vegetables with the sauce. Season with salt and cover the pan with a lid. Bring the vegetables to a robust boil on high heat and then switch off the flame. Let the veggies infuse in the sauce for a few minutes.
  4. Garnish with coriander and serve with rice, roti, naan or as a side to other curries.
