Easy baba ganoush is an incredible dip of roasted brinjals flavoured with garlic and cumin, and perked up with a touch of lemon. It has a nice smoky aroma and addictive flavour that everyone loves.

To make baba ganoush, prick the brinjal with a fork, brush it evenly with oil and roast it over an open flame for 10 minutes or till the brinjal turns black from all the sides and the flesh is soft and pulpy. Allow it to cool slightly. Remove the skin and stem and discard them and roughly chop the brinjal. Combine the brinjals, olive oil, tahini paste, garlic, cumin seeds powder, lemon juice and salt in a mixer and blend till smooth. Put the mixture in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil. Serve with cucumber, carrots and breadsticks.
