Description Edit

A famous Turkish dish, its name means literally 'the Immam fainted' - some say at the deliciousness of the dish, others claim the poor priest was horrified at the amount of oil the dish used! I prefer the first theory!

Ingredients Edit

Directions Edit

  1. Heat oven to 190°C / 375°F / gas 5.
  2. Slice each aubergine in half lengthwise.
  3. Scoop out the flesh from the aubergines and chop.
  4. Blanch the aubergine shells in boiling water for 2 minutes then drain upside down.
  5. Heat 3 tbsp of oil in a pan and saute the onion until soft and golden.
  6. Add crushed garlic and fry for 2 minutes.
  7. Add parsley, chopped aubergine, tomatoes, green and red pepper, cinnamon, salt and black pepper and cook for about 5 minutes.
  8. Add lemon juice and sugar to taste.
  9. Arrange the aubergine boats in a baking dish and fill each one with the filling.
  10. Cover the dish with aluminium foil.
  11. Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes.
