|01||Preheat oven to 220C. Place eggplant on a baking tray lined with foil and roast until blackened (50 minutes to 1 hour). Set aside until cool enough to handle (15-20 minutes), then halve lengthways and scoop out flesh (discard skin).|
|02||Meanwhile, sauté onion in olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat until lightly golden (6-8 minutes). Add garlic and stir until fragrant (1 minute). Add eggplant and turmeric, stir until excess moisture has evaporated (2-3 minutes), then remove from heat and cool (10-15 minutes).|
|03||Blend eggplant mixture and yoghurt in a food processor until almost smooth and season to taste. Spoon into a serving dish, drizzle with olive oil, scatter with green chilli, hot paprika and coriander, and serve with mountain bread.|
