Hi , everyone .
This is a welcome to my channel .
We are making Turkish Eggplant kebab , which is one of the best known and favorite dishes in turkey .
We are actually famous by making hundreds of different type of recipes from eggplant and this is one of the best one you can make with it .
So let's get started for this recipe because we will stack them to the baking tray .
It is better if you can find it the same size in diameter and also try to choose a little bit soft ones which are easier to bake and more delicious .
So I just wash them and as you see , slicing them about two centimeters thick and to take out the juices that eggplants have , I just Sprinkle good amount of salt and wait about 15 minutes .
Uh After that , you will see that the juice will come , which they are mostly bitter .
So they will get rid of it by uh pressing some uh kitchen towel on it .
This step also helps vineyard frying eggplants for other recipes .
It helps not to soak that much oil than frying .
So for the keba , which is very , very easy to make .
If it's a food processor , I have two medium size onion .
I will process them to a very fine pieces .
And that I'm adding 500 g of ground beef .
You can use half of it .
Lamp meat .
And also you should choose a meat that has fat in it , that it will give much more flavor when it is baked in the oven for the seasonings .
I'm just adding uh each one tablespoon of salt , black pepper and red pepper and just half teaspoon of baking soda and about 23 tablespoons of water just mix everything by pulsing , you know , well , as always in a food processor , you can help with your hand for the sides .
So after mixing very well , my kebab dough is ready .
I am transferring it to another bowl covered it with a plastic wrap and rested in the refrigerator for at least about two hours while the kebab mixture is resting .
I'm going to precook the eggplants .
So uh I'm just transferring to a baking tray , drizzle little bit of olive oil and bake it in 200 degree preheated oven until it is colored some on the edges and soft about , let's say uh 15 to 20 minutes .
So my uh kebab mixture is rested in the refrigerator if you don't have time , just at least uh put it for 30 minutes .
Now , I'm going to make a round shape which in the same diameter as the , the kebab and eggplants I will also bake some vegetables , tomatoes and green peppers .
So I'm preparing them .
My tomatoes were small so I just have them .
But if you have a bigger tomatoes , you can just uh slice it in a fork or eight pieces .
I'm also using green pepper too .
In about 20 minutes .
My Egglands were soft enough after waiting to cool a little bit so I can touch .
I'm ready to arrange them in a smaller round pan .
If you don't have a round pan , you can use rectangular or square .
It's ok .
But make sure it's a deep baking tray .
After all the preparations , this is really the fun part .
It looks very beautiful when you arrange it like this .
If you think the same thing , just give me a thumbs up .
So as you see , I arranged them uh one kebab and one eggplant and to the empty space that I have on the middle , I just put the uh other eggplants , tomatoes and peppers some between the layers too .
And lastly , I just uh chop some onions on the middle and drizzle with olive oil .
And for the tomato sauce in a small pan saute , two tablespoons of tomato paste with enough olive oil , about three tablespoons and then mix it with about 2.5 cups of hot water .
Make sure you cover the dish nicely .
So no steam is coming out .
I first covered , it's baking paper and done aluminum foil .
Now it goes to the preheated 220 Celsius degree oven for the menu .
I also wanted to bake some desserts , uh , which I choose a poppy C for this time .
It's a , a cake with a syrup .
If you are interested with the recipe , I have a Turkish website .
You can just check how I did it by clicking on the top right side .
After baking my dessert , my uh main dish was in the oven for 30 minutes .
It is still not very soft .
I just take off the cover and let it cook about 45 more minutes until vegetables and the meat is soft and baked .
Well , and here is the final look of my delicious kebob .
I wanted to serve it with a B P but rice pia is also uh the best friend for the uh I have one similar recipe .
