Red Lentil and Aubergine (Eggplant) Curry

I stole this from a friend who is doing weight watchers. I didn't find much veggie inspiration in her books but this looked great. She told me I have to add this sentence in "3 weight watchers POINTS values per serving" whatever that means...

Spicy, good taste in spite of the changes I made. Did not have an aubergine and the shops were closed........Looked in my freezer and came up with 2 cups of mushrooms and 2 cups of mixed green vegetables (spinach, green beans, broccoli and peas) Also tossed in half a minced carrot. Since this would probably get too dry I upped the coconut milk to 200ml. Did I make a completely different recipe? Hope not as this was very good indeed and will certainly be made again (and then with the aubergine!) My meal was probably not the WW points but that was not the reason I made it. Btw, I weighed the lentils in a cup measure and found that 175g lentils equals one cup. Thanks for posting.

This is great - but how could I not like it . . . I love lentils and aubergines and curry!!! Fantastic that it is so healthy, simple and quick, too.

This was good. I added spinach in at the end which also tasted nice.
