This is absolutely delicious. Highly recommended. Even my children loved it.


  1. Grill the eggplants in the oven or on stove top.
  2. When ready set them aside and cover with paper towels or with a clean towel. The skin comes off easier this way.
  3. When cooled peel.
  4. Chop finely with a knife or mix in a blender.
  5. Fry the chopped garlic with the oil, add eggplant and the chopped tomatoes.
  6. Add salt and pepper and fry till excess of water is gone.
  7. Beat eggs well with a fork and fry separately until half-cooked. Add to eggplants, mix and fry further for 1-2 minutes.
  8. Serve with Iranian style bread.
