Gailu Sesame And Lemon

  Aubergines/2 large ones 3 Medium (dark purple)
  Tahini 2 Tablespoon (sesame paste)
  Garlic paste 2 Teaspoon
  Yogurt 75 Gram
  Lemon/2 lime juice 1 Large, juiced

Pierce the aubergines in a few places with the point of a knife and turn them directly over a flame or under the grill until their skins are black and blistered and the flesh feels soft.
Alternatively, roast them in the oven at 200° C for approximately 40 minutes, depending on the size.
Peel them and squeeze their juice out in a colander.
Mash the flesh with a fork or puree it in a blender adding the rest of the ingredients gradually and tasting all the time.
Pour into a bowl and garnish with the olive oil, parsley and olives.
I often add half a teaspoon of freshly roasted, ground cumin and a chopped green chilli, to add a bit of excitement
