Add tomato paste and skinned tomatoes. Pour in sufficient water (1 litre (4cups)) to generously cover ingredients. Cover tightly and simmer gently for 45 minutes. Add potatoes, carrots, brinjal and baby marrows. Continue to cook until vegetables are tender. Top up with water if necessary, most of the liquid should be absorbed by end of cooking. Add curry leaves and simmer, covered, for a further 10 minutes. Stir and adjust seasoning. Add apricot jam or chutney, if desired, to sweeten slightly.
