  • Chilli powder ⅛ tsp
  • Olive oil 1 tbsp

  2. Remove the skin of eggplant and discard. Puree the eggplant in a blender with the other ingredients until smooth. Adjust the seasoning with extra salt and lemon juice if you want. Chill for a few hours before serving.
  3. Drizzle olive oil and serve with bread.
