  • 40 g pomegranate seeds
  • salt and black pepper

  1. Preheat the oven to 220°C (convection heat).
  2. Using a vegetable peeler, peel the aubergines, omitting every other strip of skin to create vertical stripes. Cut them into 2 cm thick slices that you will place in a salad bowl. Add 70 ml of oil, ½ tsp. coffee salt, a good dose of pepper and mix.
  3. Spread the slices on a large lined baking sheet and bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until golden brown. Take out of the oven and let cool.
  4. In a mixing bowl, mix the yogurt with the turmeric, the lime juice, 1 tbsp. coffee curry, 1 good pinch of salt and a few turns of the pepper mill. Reserve in the fridge until needed.
  5. Put the 2 tbsp. tablespoons remaining oil, heat in a large skillet over medium-high heat, then sauté the onion for 8 minutes, stirring regularly, until tender and well coloured. Add the remaining curry, the almonds, 1 pinch of salt and continue cooking for 2 minutes, until the almonds brown.
  6. When serving, arrange the eggplant slices in a rosette on a large serving platter or directly on the plates, then drizzle with the yogurt sauce. Sprinkle with fried onions, cumin and coriander seeds, pomegranate seeds, lime zest and serve.
