My posts are too long, so here's a short n sweet one: Baba Ghanoush/Mutabal whatever.. Easy as beating a dead dog:
1. Grill (I fry.. Each to their own) Aubergine
2. Once golden, set aside. Next, fry onions and garlic in existing oil.
3. Add in the cumin and continue to stir till it shouts 'that's enough!'
4. Combine everything in a food processor, lemon juice, tahini and all, blend, and serve..
If grilling make sure you put holes in the aubergine.. Failure to do so will render it explosive. Khodar Hafez
