  • Bring 2-3 glasses of water to a boil, and add to meat. Add 1/2 teaspoon salt, turmeric and pepper, and cook over medium heat for about one hour. When meat is cooked, there should be about one glass of water left. Add tomato paste and lime juice, and mix well.
  • Peel aubergines and slice length-wise to a thickness of 1 cm. Add salt on both sides and leave for two hours and then dry the moisture and fry in abundant oil on both sides over medium/low heat until golden (this can be done in advance).
  • Place aubergines over meat (but do not mix with meat). Place the lid on and cook over low heat for another 10 minutes.
