• Preheat oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. • Cut eggplant into small chunks. Finely chop onion and garlic. Drain and rinse bamboo shoots (see ingredients). Rinse red lentils. Cut the chicken breast into 2cm chunks. • Place eggplant on a lined oven tray. Drizzle with olive oil, season with salt and toss to coat. • Spread out evenly, then roast until tender, 20-25 minutes.
• In a large deep frying pan (or pot), heat a drizzle of olive oil over high heat. When oil is hot, cook chicken before onion, tossing occasionally, until browned and cooked through, 5-6 minutes. Transfer to a plate. • Return frying pan to medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook onion until softened, 4-5 minutes. • Add ginger paste, mild North Indian spice blend, Mumbai spice blend and tomato paste and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute. • Add the water, coconut milk, the brown sugar and vegetable stock powder and stir to combine. • Add lentils, bring to the boil, then reduce heat to a simmer. Cover with a lid (or foil) and cook, stirring occasionally, until lentils are soft, 24-28 minutes. • Stir through roasted eggplant, chicken and bamboo shoots until warmed.
• When the dhal has 10 minutes cook time remaining, slice mini flour tortillas (see ingredients) into 3cm-thick strips. • In a small bowl, combine garlic and a good drizzle of olive oil. Season and set aside. • Place tortilla strips in a single layer on the lined oven tray and brush with the garlic oil. Toast until golden, 8-10 minutes.
• Divide Indian eggplant, chicken and lentil coconut dhal between bowls. • Dollop with Greek-style yoghurt. Serve with garlic tortilla dippers. Enjoy!
