Add the prawns, cook for a few minutes; remove
Add the cumin and mustard seeds, once they have popped add the onion and fry until golden brown.
Add the tomatoes, tomato puree, , decrease the heat and cook for 7-8 minutes, until it is like a thick sauce, then add the cumin, coriander and tumeric powders, and mix and cook for a few minutes.
Add the potatoes, mix so the potatoes are coated with the tomato sauce, cover and cook about 7-8 minutes. Then add the aubergines and mix.
Cover and simmer for about 15-20 minutes until the potatoes and the aubergine is cooked.
Add the cooked prawns, stir and cook for 2-3 minutes, so that the prawns are warmed through.
