Recipe: Fattet Magdoos–Eggplant Casserole

It seems like I’ve been eating a lot of eggplants lately!

“Fattet Magdoos” is a Middle Eastern casserole dish made with eggplants, plain yogurt, ground meat, and crunchy bread. A food from each food group adds a texture and flavor that makes this simple dish a fiesta of its own.

The full recipe is posted on a fellow dietitian blog, Chow and Chatter. I encourage you to check her many delicious recipes. She shared her vegetable korma last week.

A layer of baked pita chips, eggplant and ground meat, yogurt, and topped with parsley and pine nuts

    this looks beautiful, aubergines are one of my favourite vegetables, i just adore them, and especially in cuisine from your part of the world, be it from Jordan, Syria or Lebanon. i prepare batoursh at home a lot- but i am not sure if that is specifically syrian (aleppo) or also eaten in jordan. please do share more of your Jordanian recipes with us.

      Thanks shayma. I never really liked egg plants (aubergines) when I was young but now I’m in love. This dish is prepared in Jordan, Palestine, Syria, and Lebanon (with maybe minor variations). What is batoursh? I will do my best to share more Jordanian food.
