Baba ganoush


  • Author: Chefjar


Serves 4-6


  • Large aubergines- 2
  • Greek yogurt-4 tbsp.
  • Tahini- 2 tbsp.
  • Garlic clove ( minced)-1
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Green chili (finely chopped)
  • Olive oil for drizzling- as needed
  • Salt- 1/2 tsp
  • Pomegranate seeds - 2 tbsp.


  1. Preheat your oven to 220 C/ 425 F/ Gas 9. Pierce each aubergine with a fork to vent. Drizzle them with olive oil and either cook in the oven until they are charred ( about 30-45 minutes) or hold them over a gas flame until you see the skin blisters and blackens all over. To get the smoky flavor, you need to scorch the aubergines from the outside.
  2. Once the aubergines are cooked and browned, peel the skin, scoop out the the roasted pulpy flesh and chop it into small pieces. Mash it with a fork.
  3. Put them into a sieve to drain the excess water.
  4. Transfer the drained aubergines to a large bowl, add the tahini, yogurt, lemon juice, garlic and salt. Mix well together and adjust salt and yogurt to your liking.
  5. Add in the chopped green chili and mix through.
  6. Drizzle with olive oil and top with pomegranate seeds before serving.
  7. Baba ganoush
