    3. This will prevent them from becoming slimy while cooking.
    4. Trim the top and tail and cut into 5 cm lengths.
    5. Cut eggplant into halves along their length.
    6. If they are big, cut each half into two parts.
    7. Then slice them about 1 cm thick.
    8. Cut both the capsicums into halves, discard the seeds and cut into 2 cm pieces.

    13. Cut tofu into 2 cm cubes.
    14. Heat oil in a deep non-stick pan. Add leeks and garlic, fry till fragrant.
    15. Add chili powder, cumin powder and fry for few seconds.
    16. Add carrot and beans.
    17. Add 2- 3 cups of water or vegetable stock.
    18. When the vegetables are half cooked add rest of the vegetables and tomato. Add salt to taste and simmer the stew gently till all the vegetables are cooked, tomato is pulpy and a sauce is formed.
    19. Eggplant, zucchini and pumpkin may partly disintegrate.
