This recipe was cooked by my Grandma and was her signature recipe. Itís very delicious and garlic with herbs adds the amazing flavor to the eggplant.
Itís easy to cook, fast and the ingredients may be found practically in every house.
2-3 tomatoes (depending on size of eggplant and tomatoes)
Ĺ cup of flour
2 cloves of garlic
3-4 tablespoons of olive, vegetable or sunflower oil
2 tablespoons of mayo
Dill, parsley, basil.
Wash your eggplant and tomatoes.
Slice the eggplant lengthways (the thinner the slices, the betterJ
Season each slice with salt and pepper and let it stay for 5-10 minutes.
Set the frying pan on medium heat, pour the cooking oil, coat each eggplant slice with flour and fry each slice until golden brown on each side and soft.
Remove the fried eggplant on the paper towel so that the oil would drain.
Slice the tomato and then cut the slices in halves (they should look like little timbers).Peel your garlic.
Crush the garlic with the garlic press.
Wash and cut your herbs. (I normally use dill or parsley)
Mix the crushed garlic, herbs, and mayo. Add some salt and pepper to the sauce.
Take the eggplant slice, cover it with mayo sauce and add one or two of your cut tomato ĎtimberĒ J
Roll everything up!
Repeat with all the eggplant slices.
****Tip from Helen**** sometimes I cut the very wide eggplant slices in halves, thus the rolls are smaller and more neat if you want to serve at the dinner party****Tip from Helen****
