To make the yoghurt, whizz together the yoghurt, chilli, coriander, mint and 2 tbsp water in a food processor. Pour into a bowl and add the pomegranate seeds. Set aside for serving.
Cut the tops off of the aubergines and cut into thick slices lengthways (about 2cm), then cut into batons. Put in a large bowl of cold water and soak for 1 hour. In a shallow bowl or dish, mix together the flour, sumac, za’atar and garlic salt.
Heat the oil in a wok or heavy pan no more than ⅓ full. The oil will be hot enough if a small piece of aubergine sizzles immediately when dropped in. Take the pieces directly from the water and dust in the flour mixture, coating well and shaking off the excess. Fry 4-6 pieces at a time until golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper and continue until all of the pieces are fried. Arrange on a platter, drizzle with honey and serve with a bowl of the sauce for dipping.
