Shakh Makhshi: Assyrian Stuffed Eggplant
By: Mrs. Baghdad Yaro

  • 2 small eggplants
  • 1/4 lb. ground beef
  • 4 tomatoes, cut in pieces
  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 T. Middle Eastern 7-Spice Mix
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for frying

Cut eggplant in half lengthwise, trimming off the stems. Scoop out some of the pulp to allow a space for stuffing and sprinkle the inside with a little salt. Place eggplant cut side down and fry in oil over medium heat, about 10 minutes or until soft. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Meanwhile, make the stuffing by combining ground beef, 7-spice mix, tomato and onion; fry until meat is browned. Arrange eggplant halves in a baking dish, cut side up, and add stuffing. Pour about 1/2 cup water in the bottom of the dish. Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 F. for 15 minutes or so, until warm. Serve with rice or crusty bread.
