First bake the aubergine and boil the egg. While the aubergine is baking gently fry the tomatoes together with the basil leaves and onion in the olive oil. Once the aubergine is baked, cut into thin slices. To prepare the sauce, once you have fried the tomatoes for 40 minutes to an hour, blitz and sieve then add the salt and sugar.
