  1. First, wash the eggplants, pick the tops with a fork, and roast them in the oven or on the stove. Peel and slice the eggplants, and set aside. Crush the garlic and add it to the yogurt.

Serving Suggestions
  • Pour the eggplant yogurt mixture on the serving plate first. Make a pit in the center. Add the meat to this pit.
  • You can add sauce to the food by frying the chili powder in butter. You can pour this sauce over the meat to make it more delicious. You can also enhance its appearance by adding small pieces of parsley on top.
  • You can serve the Ali Nazik recipe as a main course with rice pilaf and chili paste.
Expert Tips
  • After roasting, place the eggplants in a container while they are still hot and close the lid. This way, you can peel them more easily.
  • If you are using a different meat instead of minced meat, cook slowly over low heat.
  • When adding the meat to the eggplant yogurt, make sure it is warm. Very hot meats will change the taste of the yogurt and make it mushy.
  • When your dish is ready, adding a piece of butter to it will increase its flavor.
  • Make sure your stove is on low heat during cooking. Wait for a few minutes with the lid closed so that it can absorb the water.
