Turkish Dishes: Karni Yarik (Eggplant with Minced Meat)

KARNI YARIK (Whole, Slitted Eggplant with Seasoned Minced Meat Filling) 
(Also, check out our other Turkish Dishes)


What you need:
- 3 medium  size eggplants
- 1 Onion
- 3 cloves garlic
- 2 tomatoes
- 2 cups olive oil
- 2 tea spoon salt
- 1 table spoon black paper

How to cook:

  1. Let the eggplants to rest in salty water for about 30 minutes after cutting the shell of the eggplants like strips.
  2. While the eggplants are in the water , heat the oil then add the chopped onion,garlic and cook about 5 minutes in medium heat.
  3. Mix the minced meat with the other ingredients in the pan. Later on, add  the black pepper and salt.
  4. After the meat changed its color , you can place all cooked ingredients in a separate container.
  5. After removing eggplants , we need to dry them with paper tissue or towel.
  6. With one straight vertical line cut the eggplants into halves.  Next, cook in a frying pan with really hot oil until all sides turned brownish well. Make sure the oil is really hot for the eggplants  otherwise the eggplants can absorb the oil easily.
  7. After frying the eggplants , previously cooked ingredients should be added into the each eggplants.
  8. Stuffed Eggplants is now ready to be placed in the previously greased oven tray.
  9. Place your tray into a hot oven (180 degree) for about 30 to 40 minutes.
  10. The dish is now ready to be served. We prefer to serve the dish with garlic yogurt.
