    1 - Wash the aubergine, dry it and cut it in half vertically. Make small cuts on the pulp with a sharp knife, then cook it in the oven at 180° C for about half an hour or until the pulp is soft.

    2 - In the meantime toast the Fonio Obà in a pan for about 2 minutes

    3 - Add two tablespoons of oil and quickly sauté.

    4 - Add hot and salted water a little at a time. Not later than 1 minute, or as soon as the water has been absorbed, remove Fonio from the heat.

    5 - When the aubergine is cooked, scoop out the pulp with a spoon, mash it with a fork until it is reduced to a puree, then add it to the Fonio. Perfume and season with crushed garlic, curry, salt and finely chopped parsley. Add some flour and mix well to obtain a perfectly homogeneous mixture. Adjust salt if necessary.

    6 - Add more flour if you see that the mixture is not firm enough.

    7 - Then form four burgers, perhaps helping yourself with baking paper above and below the mixture.

    8 - Cook in a non-stick pan, a few minutes on each side (they must become well browned) and at a low flame. Alternatively, you can cook them in the oven: place the burgers on a sheet of baking paper, season with a little oil and cook in the oven at 200° for about 20 minutes.
