My mum has shared a recipe for a Indian(ish) flavoured aubergine and tomato dip. Apparently my unfoody stepdad (who describes everything as 'nice') said it was absolutely delicious. I'm making it this weekend. I'll report back and share if it is good!

Aubergine koftas is this week's Guardian vegan offering from Meera Sodha. They look very nice!

They do look lovely. I love aubergines.
You can make koftas out of virtually any vegetable, whatever you have going begging.

Is there a catch to 'register for free' ? I can't read these recipes now as I am requested to register (for free ;) )

I always get a second option that says ‘I’ll do it later’. I have registered but am not usually signed in.

Made the Melanzane al funghetto, PP- Accompanied by chunks of salty white cheese and potatoes.
Deifinitely a keeper.
While I was making it I remembered something I`d made a few years ago: fried aubergines with ketjap manis. Ketjap manis is an Indonesian soy-based condiment which is very easy to make and keeps forever.
500 mls soy sauce
320 gms palm sugar, jaggery or dark brown sugar
2 pieces star anise
4 large cloves garlic
4 cms ginger
Place the soy sauce and the sugar in a saucepan. Add the star anise. Crush the garlic cloves and slice the ginger and add them to the pan. Bring to a boil, then lower the temperature to medium. Cook for about 15 minutes, until the liquid has reduced by about a third. Discard the anise, garlic and ginger and pour the ketjap manis into a (clean) sauce bottle.
So to make the dish, I cut the aubergines into small pieces and fried them gently in oil. When they were browned, I added a slosh of ketjap manis, warmed the dish through, and that was it.

I wish OH liked aubergines! One of my best friends and I used to have aubergine feasts together until she moved back to North Wales!

But to be fair, it's virtually the only thing I really like that he doesn't! And he loves liver, which I don't!
