    The pita chips browned before they crisped, but turned out fine (had to use 2 pans). The aleppo pepper did not make it too spicy for my son. Family liked this a lot. I was lazy and put everything straight on a sheet pan of pita chips. Next time I will use more mint.

    This was a big hit in our house, especially surprising because the silver fox really doesn’t like eggplant. Loved every part - the beef mix, the yogurt topping and all the garnishes. Can’t wait to make it again

    Outstanding. Worked well without pomegranate. Try with lamb mince next time?

    I approached this with low expectations, as I’ve experienced a few disasters from this cookbook. However. Divine. So, so good! I was concerned that the meat was a little dry but aubergine are lovely pockets of juicy flavor. When can I make this again, and how can I make a veggie version from Mr VT? The pitta chips are too good.

    Served this as a main for 3 people - just the right amount.

    I doubled the amount of Aleppo pepper because I wanted a bit of kick and it was just right for us. Really simple, really tasty.

    I made the mince mixture the day before, so all I had to do when I got home from work was crisp up the pita bread and gently reheat the yoghurt topping. Made for an awesome midweek meal.
