Aubergine is the king of vegetables in Turkey. sort of a tomato, it’s actually classified as a fruit because it’s seeds. this is often one among my favourite and scrumptious Turkish eggplant recipes. Eggplant, Lentils and Peppers cooked in vegetable oil, also referred to as Mercimekli Mualla is from Antakya and has been cooked within the southern Turkish kitchens for generations. Dried mint and vegetable oil flavour the green lentils and aubergine/eggplant beautifully. We make this recipe using the Turkish Zeytinyagli method (Vegetables cooked in olive oil) and it’s important to let the dish cool within the pan so it can rest and therefore the flavours develop. Passed on to me by my grandmother and mother, I share this recipe with you within the hope you enjoy it the maximum amount as we all do.
