We had Yotam Ottolenghi's lentil, aubergine and bulgur pilaf this evening. Photo doesn't look very pretty but the taste was lovely and the aroma of the spices that filled the kitchen was sweet. Will definately cook again.
I was worried about deep frying the aubergines but drained them back into a mesuring cup and there was about 200ml of oil/juices drained back into the cup and the aubergies were actualy not heavy.
Here is the link for the recipe;
