Put the whole Brazil nuts in a food processor with the ginger, garlic and lime juice. Blend to a paste, then add the coconut yogurt and molasses. Blitz briefly to combine, then tip into a large bowl along with the chicken. Mix well to coat in the marinade, cover the bowl with cling film and leave in the fridge overnight.
The following day, heat oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Spread the chicken out in a deep roasting tin, skin-side up, and cook in the oven for 45 mins-1 hr or until golden brown and the juices run clear.
While the chicken cooks, brush the aubergine slices with the oil and cook on a hot griddle pan for 3-4 mins each side or until tender and patterned with char marks. Lay the aubergines on a serving platter, add the cooked chicken and scatter over the chopped Brazil nuts and the pomegranate seeds.
