Method

This is a Middle-Eastern recipe which makes an interesting cold starter. Serve as a dip with pitta bread.

Put the aubergines on a baking tray and roast in the oven at Gas Mark 6, 200 deg C, 400 deg F, for about 30 minutes, or until they are soft. Remove from the heat and squeeze the aubergines to remove any bitter juice. Chop roughly, and put in a blender with the oil, lemon juice, garlic and yoghurt. Add salt to taste. Blend together until a smooth pureƩ results. Spoon into a serving dish and garnish with the chopped parsley and a little paprika.
