“After they woke up, they ate luxurious dinner – patlican kebabi, which was made of lamb meat and eggplant – in a nearby restaurant.”

Raymond Benson: “The World Is Not Enough” (1999)


– 5 eggplants
– 1/2 pound ground lamb or beef
– 1/2 tablespoon tomato paste
– 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
– 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
– 1/2 teaspoon salt
– Olive oil for brushing

How to do it:

Peel the eggplants striped. Soak in salty water for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, combine ground lamb with tomato paste, red pepper flakes, black pepper and salt (and optional spices). Mix thoroughly.
Use a paper towel to dry the eggplants. Cut them into 1 inch thick pieces.
Take a piece of meat mixture and roll within your palms, press lightly. Pay attention to divide the meat mixture evenly to obtain as many meatballs as the number of eggplant intervals. Set them aside.
Take a skewer. First soak in water for a few minutes, then oil them slightly so that they’re not burned and the meat does not stick. Place one eggplant on the skewer, followed by one meatball, and continue this sequence until close to the tip of the skewer. Finally brush the eggplants and meats with olive oil.
Preheat oven to 450 degrees F and bake for 45 minutes or until eggplants are tender.Recipe: delishturkishfood.com
