  • Prep Time 30min
  • Cook Time 40min


Preheat the oven to 200 ˚C. Wash the aubergines and cut into quarters lengthways. Place them in a sieve and rub in the salt. Leave to drain for 30 minutes. Wash the aubergines well and dry thoroughly. Place them in a roasting tin and toss well with 60 ml of the olive oil. Roast in the oven for 30 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the roasting tin and set aside. Heat the remaining olive oil in a large frying pan and cook the garlic and ginger for 2 minutes. Add the spices, honey, harissa paste, and tomato paste and lemon juice. Stir well and season to taste with salt and ground black pepper. Add the aubergines and cook for 6 to 8 minutes over low heat, turning the aubergines carefully half way through cooking, taking care that it doesn’t burn. Add the halved Mild Peppadew® Sweet Piquanté Peppers. Transfer to a serving platter and scatter with the coriander leaves and dollops of yogurt. Serve at once with couscous.
