  1. Place the eggplant and red peppers directly over the
    flame of a gas burner or barbecue, or under a preheated
    grill, turning regularly until completely blackened and soft.
    Place them in a large bowl & cover with a lid or plastic wrap
    and let them sweat for 10 minutes.
  2. Remove and peel off all the blackened skin and discard.
    Remove the stalk and seeds from the pepper and chop the
    flesh finely. Cut the stalk off the eggplant and chop the flesh
  3. Heat the oil in a frying pan and sauté the onions & garlic
    for 5 minutes until soft. Place this in a large bowl with the red
    pepper, eggplant, lamb, chilli, sugar, salt, lemon juice and
    parsley. Mix using your hands or a wooden spoon until well
  4. Divide the dough into 4–8 and roll/stretch out to canoe
    shaped flat breads. Roll over the edges a little to form a lip.
    Spread the filling over each dough base and top with the feta.
  5. Bake in a hot oven until golden and bubbling. Remove from
    oven and serve with Yoghurt & Tahini sauce and a little parsley
    and sumac.
