  • Heat 2 tbsp of the oil in a large non-stick frying pan. Fry the aubergines until nicely colored on all sides then remove and set aside.

  • Add another tbsp of oil to the pan and lightly fry the onion for 2-3 mins or until softened.

  • Add the garlic and parsley stalks, cook for a few mins more, then stir in the spices and rice until everything is well coated. Heat for 2 mins.
