I love this Catalan dish best when the vegetables have been grilled over the fire, which is the atavistic way of getting the perfect, mellow, smoky flavour. But, failing that, they can be cooked under a grill; in which case, avoid undercooked aubergines, which are a bit like eating tree bark, by frying them first. This version ensures that everything is cooked and harmonious.
