  1. For the curry, fry the aubergine in a frying pan with the oil, spring onions and spices. Cook for 5 minutes.

  2. Add the cherry tomatoes and prawns, then turn down the heat and cook for a further 5 minutes.

  3. Finish by stirring in the Greek yoghurt and take off the heat.

  4. For the griddled aubergine, rub the aubergine slices with oil on both sides and place on a hot griddle pan. Cook for 3 minutes on each side or until soft and charred.

  5. Reserve one slice of the griddled aubergine and slice into four for decoration later.

  6. With the 3 remaining slices, place a spoonful of the prawn mixture in the middle of each slice and roll to secure.
