This was delicious! After creating the eggplant rolls, I decided to cut each one in half, so that they could stand upright and be of a more manageable size. After baking them at 350F for about 45 minutes (I wasn't sure if I trusted the 1 hour at 450F), they came out beautifully, and stayed rolled up on their own. I put parsley, mint, salt/pepper, cinnamon, allspice and a bit of pepper flakes/sugar in with the meat. The tomato sauce had lime juice, cumin, turmeric, bit of sugar, and garlic. The result was very tender, and goes GREAT in pita!
I've made this recipe a few times over the past couple years and I love it each time! It's so unique and it's wonderful to ask for "assistance" from family members to bring not only dish together, but all of us closer together too! Thank you for posting!
I thought this meal was fantastic! DH wasn't as enthused. The sauce was a little caramelized from cooking at such a high temp and he didn't care for that flavor. I thought it gave the sauce a lot of depth.I seasoned the meat with a little cumin, coriander, turmeric and cayenne. Thanks for posting this delicious recipe.
delicious! this has become a favourite at our house! thanks!
You must all be great cooks, because I have huge problems when it comes to spices, if I don't know roughly if I am dealing with a sprinkle, half a teaspoon, teaspoon or tablespoon of something. I definitely would need an example given of 'spices' and change from there, like 'I used 1 teaspoon of ground coriander and cumin and salt'. PLEASE! The seasoning is the most important. I added and tasted, added and tasted and it still did not come out well, at a point I think I have added too much. Please supply us not only with e.g. names of spices, but amount to go from there. TA!
Nice, I used ground chicken breast, next time will try the mix recommended. Another change I made was 400C for 45 minI
