Heat the remaining oil in a small pan and add the tomatoes, garlic and chilli flakes, along with a little salt. Cook gently for 3-4 mins until the tomatoes are just softened. In a small bowl, mix the yogurt with the mint and some seasoning.

  2. Heat a barbecue, griddle pan or grill, then cook the aubergine slices for 5-6 mins each side until nicely browned and softened. Serve 3 slices per person with the minty yogurt and tomato sauces.

Thank you for that really helpful suggestion! I love aubergine but avoid them because they use up so much oil. I am going to try this tonight. : ))
