- 1 large / 2 medium aubergines (bharta baingan)
- 2 large cloves garlic, slivered
- ½ cup tahini paste (sesame butter)
- Juice of 1 lemon
- ½ tsp unrefined salt, or to taste
Preheat the oven to 375 °F (190 °C). Make several cuts on the aubergines and insert the garlic slivers. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and bake until soft – about 40 minutes. Cool. Remove skin. Transfer to a blender along with the rest of the ingredients and process until smooth. Serve at room temperature.
