For the aubergine purée: fry the diced aubergine in the oil, add the spices, then once the aubergine is cooked, add the yoghurt, place in a blender and blend until smooth.
For the lamb loin: place a non stick pan onto a high heat, add 10ml of grapeseed oil, once the oil is nearly smoking, season the loin with salt and place in the pan. Make sure the loin is well caramelised, place in the oven for 3 minutes at 180C. Then leave to rest for 2 minutes.
