Cookbook Countdown #5 ~ Honey & Co's Badargani - aubergine rolls with walnuts and pomegranate

 Welcome to Cookbook Countdown
 I'm co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours. If you are like us, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that. Join us at Cookbook Countdown

 Dinner for two:
I used one large aubergine and scaled down the rest of
the ingredients accordingly, grilled the aubergines
instead of baking them... worked just fine.

The filling has diced aubergine, red onion, grated fresh ginger,
chopped parsley and pomegranate seeds with pomegranate molasses.
Dinner not served yet (awaiting his Majesty's instructions)
to be paired with a lightly dressed mixed salad.

With the poached quince, I made a tea and now with the poached quince slices,
served it cold with ricotta cheese,
(stored bought - lazy like Itamar! although Sarit gave a detailed method 
of making your very own ricotta, maybe next time)
a lightly dressed green salad in place of lamb's ears,
garnished with honeyed toasted hazelnuts!
