    1. 1
      Preheat the oven to 375°. Halve the eggplants lengthwise, then slash the flesh 4 or 5 times and sprinkle generously with salt. Put in a colander and let stand 30 minutes. Rinse and pat dry with paper towels.

      Heat the oil in a large, heavy-bottom skillet over medium heat. Add the eggplants, cut side down and cook 5 minutes. Remove and drain well. Transfer to a casserole. Add onions, garlic, and green pepper to skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Add the tomatoes, sugar, and ground coriander. Season with salt and pepper, then stir in the cilantro.

      Off memory I think my mother translation of Imam Bayildi is Imam is a prayer leaders (like Priest) and Bayildi is slang for fainted. I can't remember the stories, but I think it had something to do with the prayer leaders daughter making this dish for first time, the prayer leader tasted it and he fainted with delight, something I call a food-gasim. The recipe was easy to make and delicious, I served it Luke warm because I didn't read the whole directions before starting it. I think it could be eaten hot or cold, but the flavour enhances when eaten cold and it's a perfect summer dish. Thank you for posting the recipe Julie B's Hive
