Method

1
To begin, make the filling. Heat the olive oil in a pan and season the aubergine. Add the aubergine to the pan, tossing in the hot oil until it is all absorbed. Fry gently for 15–20 minutes, turning every so often, until the aubergine is soft and the oil has released back into the pan

  • 4 tbsp of olive oil

Scoop out with a slotted spoon onto kitchen paper. Add the onion to the pan, fry gently for 10 minutes until softened then add the garlic and cumin. Fry for 30 seconds more, then transfer to a bowl and mix in the aubergine
