Ingredients

Method

  • STEP 1

    Fire up the barbecue. While the coals are still very hot, cook the aubergines whole until the skin is blackened and the flesh soft, then leave to cool in a bowl. (Alternatively cook the aubergines in a very hot oven for 20 mins or char on a hot griddle pan). Peel off the charred skin and chop the flesh. Tip into a food processor with the yogurt, lemon juice, garlic, chilli, coriander and olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Blend until smooth tip into a bowl, and drizzle with more olive oil. For a chunkier dip, the aubergine, garlic and chilli can be chopped by hand and mixed with the other ingredients.

  • STEP 2

    Place uncooked poppadums one at a time over very hot coals and watch as they blister and contort in front of you. They only need about 30 secs on each side – just use a pair of tongs to turn them over when crisp and lightly charred.
