How to Make Brinjal Muttabal

  • Make 2 or 3 slits in each brinjal. Cook over charcoal, under a hot grill or in an oven, until the skin turns black and the flesh feels soft when poked with a finger.
  • When cool enough to handle, peel the aubergines, scraping off and reserving any flesh that comes away with the skin.
  • Put the flesh in a large bowl and mash with a fork.
  • Add the garlic and salt and continue to mash or pound the mixture, until it is reduced to a pulp.
  • Add the tahina paste, lemon juice and chilli paste. Stir thoroughly.
  • Spoon the mixture on to a large plate, smooth it over with the back of a spoon and sprinkle cumin.
  • Dribble the olive oil over the top and garnish, with the chopped coriander leaves or parsley and black olives.
