Heat the oil in a frying pan and gently saute the aubergine until it begins to brown. Turn and repeat on the other side. As each piece is done, remove to kitchen paper. When the aubergine is cooked, stir the onion in the frying pan until softened, but not browned.

Mix the cheeses together and add the boiling water to make a paste. When the tomato mixture is ready, spoon the remaining mixture over the bottom of a large casserole dish.
Cover with half the aubergine and add another third of the tomato mixture and layer on the remaining aubergine. Spread a third of the cheese mixture on to the aubergine. Then add half the potatoes, another third of the cheese and then the remaining potatoes. Finish with the final third of cheese. Cover and bake in the middle of the oven for 30 minutes.
