aubergines à l'orientale


There are different ways of preparing this dish. 1) Aubergines (US: eggplants) sliced and deep-fried. Pairs of slices are then stuck together with a mixture of tomatoes, more aubergine, breadcrumbs and garlic and then baked or, alternatively, 2) Aubergines split lengthways, fried in oil, the flesh removed and mixed with chopped onions, red peppers, minced (US: ground) mutton, rice and garlic, returned to the skins, sprinkled with Parmesan cheese and baked.
