Aubergine Delights By Ozgul From Sales

Aubergine Delights –with its original name “Islim Kebab”- is known to be an old Ottoman dish which is made of aubergines stuffed with soft beef in a rich tomato sauce and grated cheese that done my way.

    Looks yummy!! As an aubergine- freak I can say that it is a very good combination. It is very hard to get this bright golden colour at frying the aubergine slices, very successful. Also the presentation is very pretty too. Good luck! – Aslihan
