This is superb. I like to try uncomplicated and simple ideas.I tried this except for ground cumin because I run out. I microwaved the aubergine, cut in half and pierce few holes with edge of knive. cover and m/wave for 3min on High or until the aubergine is tender. I lightly toasted the garlic on fried pan.And I add juice from 2 lemons.
I liked this, especially the creamy texture, but felt it needed something to take it up a level. It was just a little bland for my taste. I added a couple teaspoonfuls of hot sauce and that helped. Next time I might try a squeeze of lemon juice as well. I served it with toasted pita bread.
