Aubergine gefüllt Mensa Zu Hause

New recipes for the Mensa at home: this one is for braised eggplants filled with vegetables, a dish that is popular in Turkey, Albania, Bulgaria and Greece. İmam bayıldı translates as "the Iman fainted" - probably in delight because of the delicious taste. Of course, we hope that none of you will faint after eating the eggplants, but we still hope you will be delighted with the taste and have lots of fun cooking it!
