Description: Turkish Eggplant Kebab

History: A main dish loved and cooked a lot by Turks in Turkiye. It is not very easy to prepare but your guests will admire it. Turks smoke like a chimney and it has been proved that eggplant has nicotine in it. It can be one of the reasons why eggplant is cooked in many ways by Turks.

Serving Size: 4

Preparation time: about 1 hour

Amount/Measure /Ingredient
1/2kg. Chopped lamb or veal
1 kilogram eggplant
2 tablespoons plain butter

a) Cut the stems off the eggplant then peel a half-inch-wide strip of skin lengthwise, leaving next inch with the skin on. Repeat until you have a striped effect.
