(Thit Cuu Xot Te An Voi Ca Tim Va Xot)

Ingredients : Serves 4

2 large

45 ml


2 cloves

6 large

1/4 teaspoon each



2 tablespoons

150 ml

1/4 teaspoon




A few sprigs

Aubergines, ends cut off, thickly sliced

Olive oil

Lamb cutlets, trimmed

Tomatoes blanched, skinned and thickly sliced

Method :
  • Sprinkle salt over the aubergine and leave for 20 minutes. Rinse the aubergine and dry with absorbent kitchen paper.

  • Heat 30ml olive oil in a wok over a very high heat and add the lamb cutlets. When brown, lower the heat and continue cooking until the meat is tender about 5 minutes on each side.

  • Remove from the wok, drain on absorbent kitchen paper and keep in a warm oven.

  • Add the remaining oil to the wok and fry the aubergine slices with the garlic until they are lightly browned on both sides. (If the oil dries out, add a little more).

  • When they are cooked, push them up the side of the wok and add the tomato slices.

  • Stir fry for a few moments and season with salt and pepper.

  • Place the vegetables on a dish and arrange the cutlets over the vegetables.

  • Garnish with lemon slices and sprigs of mint.

  • Prepare the sauce by stirring the mint into the yogurt.

  • Grind some black pepper over it and serve in a small bowl.
