How to make Baba Ghanoush with Minced Lamb and Pine Nuts

  1. Prick the eggplant with a fork and grill the skin is charred, blacked and the flesh feels soft. (I did it on stove; you can do it in oven or charcoal fire). Gently wrap with a cloth and leave it for 2 minutes.
  2. While the eggplants are still warm, carefully peel the skin. Roughly cut and chop.
  3. Add this to food processor/grinder (motar &pestle) along with garlic, tahini, yogurt and half of lemon juice. Blend for 1-2 minutes. Check by adding salt. If required add more tahini or lemon juice.
  4. Take this into a large serving plate and drizzle olive oil on top. Blend by adding olive oil to get creamier consistency.
  5. Make the minced lamb topping by heating ghee in a large pan by adding minced lamb. Fry till mince turns slightly brown.
  6. Now add chopped onions, red chili, tomatoes, tomato paste, chili paste, salt and black pepper. Fry till tomatoes turn soft and moisture is absorbed. Cool and thickly spread over baba ghanoush.
  7. Garnish with dry roasted pine nuts.

My Tip:

Though a tabbouleh would have been a good accompaniment to the meal, I made an avocado salsa along with Lebanese pita breads to complete the meal
