This is a version of another of my family's favourite dishes, obviously the original has potatoes in the bottom which I now cook separately. The quantity here should be enough for 4 large portions at least. 2 large onions 2 garlic cloves 1 lb extra-lean beef mince 1 tin of chopped tomatoes Salt & Pepper ~1 tb Paprika ~1 ts Cinnamon 2 Aubergines 500 gr yoghurt 2 eggs 2 cloves of garlic Conso only: grated cheese to taste Slice the aubergine into 1 cm thick slices, sprinkle with salt and leave to sweat for 20 mins. Meanwhile dry-fry onion, garlic, add mince, when browned add tin of tomatoes. add seasoning. As you can see I was vague, adjust to your taste. I use lots of (mild) paprika and a little cinnamon. Simmer gently for 30 mins or so. Now dry the aubergine slices on kitchen paper and cook in a health grill or similar until cooked and a bit charred. Do not add any oil etc. Pile the meat mix into an oven proof dish, arrange the aubergine slices on top. Make the white sauce by mixing the eggs, yoghurt and garlic, add a bit of salt to taste. Spread on top of aubergines. At this point you could add a few TB of grated cheese on top if you are in Conso. Bake at 180-200C for about 40 mins until top is set and browned.
