Heat the oil in a large deep pan, add the onion and fry gently for 5 minutes. Add the sweet potatoes and cook for a further 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Add the aubergine and courgettes, frying for 5 minutes more before adding the red pepper. Stir in the curry paste then add the tomatoes, soy sauce and stock and bring to a simmer. Cover the pan and cook for about 30 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.

Mix the cornflour with the yoghurt and stir into the pan. Simmer over a low heat, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens. Cook for 2-3 minutes more, then scatter over the chopped coriander.

You can also add other vegetables to the curry - try squash or pumpkin instead of sweet potato and cauliflower instead of the aubergine. Serve with pilau or plain boiled rice, Indian breads and chutneys.
