  • 675g (1½lb) Lean lamb mince
  • 1 Onion, chopped
  • 1 Garlic clove, crushed
  • 3x15mlsp (3tbsp) Tomato purée

Pre-heat the oven.

In a non-stick pan dry fry the lamb mince, onion and garlic for 4-5 minutes. Add the purée and mint jelly and cook for a further 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, lightly brown the aubergine on both sides in a hot frying pan (you might have to do this in 2 or 3 batches).

Place half the mince mixture into an ovenproof dish and top with some of the aubergine slices. Crumble over the Feta cheese and cover with the rest of the mince and the remaining aubergine.

Mix together the yogurt and eggs and pour over the aubergines.

Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown. .
