Baqlajon urama gazak (Eggplant rolls)
As I posted earlier I love eggplant! That's why I love this rolls, they are soft on outer side and crunchy inside. I like the taste of a garlic with eggplant. "Baqlajon urama gazak" is a good appetizer.
3 medium carrots, peeled
3 cloves of garlic, mashed
2 tbsp of vegetable oil
2 big long eggplants
A little oil for frying
Salt to taste
Grate carrots or cut in thin long strips, add in 1 tsp of salt, mashed garlic and 2 tbsp of oil. Mash with hands until carrot will start to give its juice, but don't over mash. Set aside.
Cut eggplants in thin long slices, and put them in cold salty water for 15 min. Drain the water. Heat up heavy pan and drop 6-7 drops of oil and fry both sides of eggplant slices. Repeat with the rest of eggplant slices. Place in 1-2 tbsp of filling on a fried eggplant slice and roll it up tightly. Done! Serve and enjoy this yummy rolls.
