  • 750 g (1½ lb) aubergines
  • 2 teaspoons sunflower oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon cornflour
  • 300 ml (½ pint) very low-fat natural yogurt
  • 375 g (12 oz) ripe tomatoes, skinned and chopped
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 25 g (1 oz) grated Parmesan
  • 1 egg, plus 1 egg white, beaten
  • Salt and pepper


1 Slice two thirds of the aubergines 1 cm (1/2 inch) thick, sprinkle them with salt and set them aside to drain.

2 Prick the rest of the aubergines all over and boil whole in salted water for 10 minutes.

3 Pat the sliced aubergines dry, paint each slice scantily with oil and grill until lightly coloured. Drain.

4 Poach the onion in a little water and cook gently until soft. Mix the cornflour into the yogurt.

5 Peel the whole aubergines and mash them, mix with the onions, tomatoes, 2 tablespoons of the yogurt mixture, salt, pepper and cinnamon.

6 Line an ovenproof dish with the sliced aubergines. Spread some of the mashed aubergines over the top and sprinkle with Parmesan. Repeat until the dish is nearly full.

7 Beat the egg mixture into the remaining yogurt and pour over, sprinkle with a little cinnamon and salt and bake in a preheated oven, 200°C (400°F), Gas Mark 6, for 20 minutes.
