Cut the aubergine into fairly thin slices. Put them in a colander to drain, lightly salted. After half an hour, dab them with a paper towel, then cook them on a heavy griddle frying pan. When done, fill them with ham, sun-dried tomato red pesto and a sprinkling of oregano. Roll them up and secure with a toothpick. Serve.

To remove the bitterness from the aubergine you can flush it out with milk or salted water.
Did you know that the aubergine has an Asian origin - specifically it is believed to come from China or India.
