cook 20 mins
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 baby aubergines, halved
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • finely grated rind and juice of 1/2 lemon
  • handful of chopped fresh coriander
  • 3 tomatoes, chopped
  • 8 lamb chops
  • salt and pepper
  • Rub 2 tablespoons of the oil over the aubergine slices and season well. Heat a griddle pan until smoking hot, then cook the aubergine for about 5 minutes until soft and lightly charred all over.
  • Mix the spices, garlic, lemon rind and juice and coriander with 3 tablespoons of the oil, season to taste and toss with the tomatoes and warm aubergine.
