INGREDIENTS
small eggplants, 6
lamb or beef, 500 grams (1.1 lbs)

METHOD

Peel and finely chop onions, Fry in oil until golden. Save half for later use. Cut meat into small pieces and fry with onions until colour changes. Add 2-3 glasses of hot water and cook over medium heat for about 45 minutes. If necessary, additional hot water should be added while cooking.
Peel eggplants and slice length-wise to a thickness of 1 cm. Add salt and pepper and fry on both sides on medium heat until golden. Mash the meat and eggplants and mix well. Add the gravy from the meat and one glass of hot water to the mix and cook over low heat, mixing occasionally until no water is left. Remove the mix from heat. Add kashk and mix well, then add fried onions on top.
Fry dried mint in oil for a few minutes. (If fresh mint is used, wash and finely chop it, then fry in oil). Also add fried mint on top of Haleem Baadenjaan and serve.
